Career Progression Systems in the Internal Labor Market for a Multi-plant Manufacturing Corporation.
The report presents the design and installation of a Career Progression Systems for a Multi-Plant Manufacturing Corporation. The project explored the obstacles to increased occupational mobility for workers at a Multi-Plant manufacturing firm. Analysis of job histories of workers at two plants found advancement opportunities to be limited and inequitable because narrow departmental units were used as the basis for defining eligibility for promotions. Through the use of job task requirements analysis, a Career Progression System (CPS) was designed to redefine the eligibility pools for promotional decisions in accord with common skill requirements. Efforts to implement the CPS were only partially successful due to collective bargaining agreement constraints coupled with the economic turndown. (NTIS)
