Business-Industry and Union Providers of Basic Education in the Workplace.
Mark, Jorie Lester, Ed.; Campbell, Joyce Fowlkes, Ed.
This publication highlights business, industry, and union efforts--independent of or collaborative with the public sector--to provide employees with the basic education they need to do their jobs. The 34 employee education programs sketched here are considered to be cost-effective when compared to the cost of recruiting and training replacement workers, and because they treat such corporate problems as absenteeism, low morale, and high turnover. Other benefits that can be derived from the programs include improved communication, greater job satisfaction, reduced machine time due to operator error, and greater on-the-job safety. Each program description in this document provides information on the scope of the program, the sponsor, an address, and a person to contact. The last page of the document is a blank form for other providers of workplace education programs to describe their programs and send them to the authors of this directory for future reference. (KC)
