A Conceptual Framework for Human Resource Policy: Implications for Vocational Education Research and Development.
Parnes, Herbert S.
Human resource policies are those courses of action designed to enhance the effectiveness of human beings in their productive roles and to make the productive role best serve the other needs of man. There are several categories of human resource policy: (1) policies designed to achieve the fullest development of human resources, (2) policies concerned with the optimal allocation of resources, (3) policies concerned with human resource utilization, (4) policies concerned with human resource maintenance and conservation, and (5) policies concerned with maintaining a high level of demand for employment in the economy. A basic relationship exists between human resource policy and vocational education research and development. However, there are several issues that need to be studied. It is important to know the proper mix of training in and out of school in generating the competence required for various kinds of careers as well as the manner by which the school system can better provide the kinds of labor market information that will allow youth to make rational occupational decisions. There is also the complex task of integrating the entire educational experience in order to achieve all of the objectives that education is designed to serve for all students. (Author/EC)
