Private and Public Manpower Policies to Stimulate Productivity.
Ginzberg, Eli; And Others
Realizing the relationship of productivity to technological, organizational, and manpower variables, and the need to improve and increase production gains, this document examines existing public and private entrepreneurial and industrial relations structures in an effort to ascertain manpower policy measures which if strengthened or introduced might facilitate production gains. Investigated and included in the content are such topics as: (1) The Nature of Change, (2) Historical Perspectives, (3) Private Arrangements, (4) Public Policies, and (5) New Directions. Findings and implications include: (1) A recognition by the Federal Government that the sine qua non for a conducive environment for stimulating productivity changes is a high level of continuing employment for the economy, and (2) There is little prospect for success on the part of either private or public manpower policy directed to facilitating the adjustment of workers affected by productivity changes except against a background of a high employment economy.
