Training's Benchmarks. A Statistical Sketch of Employer-Provided Training and Education: 1969-1981. Task I Report: The Impact of Public Policy on Education and Training in the Private Sector.
Zemsky, Robert; And Others
This report, comprised of five separate reports, presents a set of statistical benchmarks for gauging the growth and development of corporate training and education over the last decade. "Summary Findings" (Robert Zemsky) presents in capsule form the technical analyses of the findings of the other four reports. It considers these questions: how much has corporate training and education increased? who gets trained and why? what is the link between training and compensation? and does training promote employment stability? Part Two, "Trends in Employer-Sponsored Education and Training: 1969-1978" (Michael L. Tierney), presents the technical analyses of the four questions, in the form of an analysis of the survey of adult education, 1969 through 1978. It discusses the total volume of employer-sponsored education and training, attributes of employer-sponsored courses, demographic attributes of participants, and the labor force attributes of participants. "Employer-Provided Education and Training in 1981" (Michael L. Tierney) is an analysis of the 1981 survey of adult education. "The Impact of Corporate Education and Training on Earnings and Employment" (Michael L. Tierney) is a modeling of the relationship between wages and training and between employment stability and training. "Company Training, Employment Stability, and Employers' Needs and Practices" (Ivar Berg and Janice Shack-Marquez) is an analysis of three additional national surveys of work and training experiences--the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, the new National Longitudinal Survey of Youths, and the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972.
