One-Stop Career Center Concept. Employer Questionnaire.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
The purpose of the One-Stop Career Center Concept Employer Questionnaire was to provide a model instrument that could be used or adapted by a governing board that wants to go the extra mile in ensuring a customer-driven, one-stop career center system. The survey was distributed to 5,000 businesses in 19 states that received One-Step Implementation Grants from the U.S. Department of Labor. The quantitative survey was supplemented with a battery of qualitative focus groups research in Dallas and Fort Worth Texas and Washington, D.C. Results were also obtained by local and state systems in Massachusetts, California, and Connecticut. This document contains a fact sheet that explains some broad features being considered for the one-stop career center service menu, the employer questionnaire, and aggregated national data from the questionnaire. Preliminary survey results are reported: few firms were aware of the work force development services listed but also noted that these services would be useful; work force quality was an important concern of many companies surveyed; labor market information that was most useful to employers was local information; for many companies, the services that would be most useful were those that would reduce their "human resource transaction costs"; and an important function for the one-stop centers was information provision.
