Employment Generating Services Handbook: Practical Models for Expanding Job Opportunities. Private Industry Council Training Series: 2.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This handbook, developed by the National Alliance of Business, is designed as a tool for Private Industry Councils (PICs) in providing a framework for planning a program of Employment Generating Services (EGS) for disadvantaged workers. Based on the experiences of many PICs, a six-step EGS-program-planning process that includes assessing needs, establishing priorities, formulating goals, determining the mix of projects, specifying objectives and evaluation criteria, and developing work plans is suggested. Presented are examples of job creation and job access plans including a statement of the main program priority, the primary and secondary program goals, and a list of individual projects and project objectives developed in response to those priority needs and goals. In the remaining three-quarters of the handbook, 20 EGS models of successful projects are provided with examples for labor market information, marketing, cooperative ventures, economic development, and worker/workplace. Before the models are presented, a priority chart is provided to guide the reader to models that create jobs or allow access to existing jobs. Information for each model includes model intent, description, instructions for implementation, allocating resources, best operating conditions, pitfalls, and questions measuring success. To share further experiences, a project feedback form is provided. (BPB)
