How US Steel Companies Are Addressing the Skill Shortages that They Meet.
Haddadj, Slimane; Besson, Dominique
Journal of European Industrial Training, v22 n7 p301-08 1998
A survey of 350 U.S. steel companies found the use of three approaches to skill shortages: contingent action (recruiting nontraditional or nonlocal workers, incentives for referrals); passive action (recruiting through job fairs, private industry councils, government agencies); or active action (retraining, restructuring jobs, raising entry-level salaries). Only a minority use the active approach. (SK)
