Labor Force 2000: Corporate America Responds. Allstate Forum on Public Issues (Chicago, Illinois, February 8-9, District of Columbia, April 20, 1989).
Allstate Insurance Co., Northbrook, IL.
This report is a result of the Allstate Forum on Public Issues, which gathered representatives from 166 U.S. corporations to hear leaders from government, academia, and business. Again meeting on April 20, 1990, representatives were divided into working groups to develop reports and recommendations around applicable corporate disciplines. This report describes a comprehensive plan for education, where companies act as catalysts for planning. There are six chapters in this report: (1) strategic planning; (2) human resources; (3) communications; (4) corporate philanthropy; (5) training; and (6) government relations. The first chapter suggests a strategic planning model for organizing a step-by-step program for generating community involvement and support. Subsequent chapters outline specific actions companies might take to implement the vision developed within their communities. The following three recommendations are based on the creation of an ongoing partnership among education, business, and the community: (1) establish an educational vision for the community; (2) communicate that vision to all members of the community; and (3) empower all relevant groups in the implementation phase of the program. All chapters list references. The first chapter includes 10 figures. An appendix listing all 166 participants in the Chicago forum is included. (NLA)
