Employability Development Teams and Federal Manpower Programs: A Critical Assessment of the Philadelphia CEP's Experience.
Leone, Richard D.; And Others
This report is concerned with the procedures used and the conclusions of an assessment of the impact of employability development teams and the manpower delivery system of Philadelphia's Concentrated Employment Program (CEP). Since teams were not implemented until 1970, it is a comparative analysis of CEP's manpower delivery system in 1969 versus 1970. It assesses the impact of the teams on employers, enrollees, and the operations of CEP. Team members, enrollees, and employers were interviewed. The teams facilitated communication between component parts of the program. Teams improved the program's ability to use assessment information. From an overall point of view, however, teams did not have a positive impact on the enrollees. Teams staffed by personnel who had a more realistic appraisal of the program's and clients' potential, and who prefereed a highly structured managerial style, were better than teams manifesting the converse. Teams had no impact on the employer's relationship with CEP. (NTIS)
