On-the-Job Orientation of Unemployed Negro Skill Center Trainees and Their Supervisors. Final Report.
The problems inherent in employing hard-core unemployed Negroes and the optimal locus of on-the-job orientation to integrate such employees into thework force were subjects of this study. It focused on young Negro females who, because of their inability to meet selections minimums for job entry, had a high potential for chronic unemployment. Among the conclusions of the study were that sanctions for absenteeism in a training center cannot parallel these on-the-job, that there is a serious question whether utilization of any on the job orientation is desirable to integrate the special employee into the world of work, that management's concern is apt to be more with organizational welfare than societal, and that intervention with normal work schedules for skill training sessions will create antagonism among company personnel. This project used role playing questionnaires, demographic surveys and other techniques which are fully reported in the second section. (MS)
