Jobs, Technology, and Employability: Redefining the Social Contract.
Adler, Richard P.
The topic of the 1997 annual meeting of the Aspen Institute's Forum on Communications and Society (FOCAS) sprang from the previous work of the FOCAS in the areas of education, lifelong learning, and technology. This report examines the changing nature of the employee-employer relationship and whether the economic, technological, demographic, and social trends driving the global economy will lead to the development of a new "social contract" between them. It is an informed observer's interpretation of the discussions that took place at the meeting in Aspen. The main themes of the conference are placed into a broader context to allow for the understanding of the changing employment relationship, and the collaborations and other initiatives suggested by conference participants are highlighted. Following an "Introduction" and "Overview," the body of the report is divided into four sections: (1) "The New Economy"; (2) "Learning and Employability"; (3) "New Initiatives, New Proposals"; and (4) "Beyond Employability." An Afterword "Beyond Employability" (John Epperheimer), a list of conference participants, and a brief profile of the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program are also included. (AEF)
