Labor in the public and nonprofit sectors by Daniel S Hamermesh( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally presented at a Conference on Labor in Nonprofit Industry and Government held at Princeton University, the studies are the first to provide an economic discussion of the public sector labor market. Melvin Reder examines the effect of the absence of the profit motive on employment and wage determination in the public sector. Orley Ashenfelter and Ronald Ehrenberg estimate the elasticities of demand for various types of labor employed by State and local governments. Theoretical ideas about behavior in nonprofit industries are employed by Richard Freeman to study the higher education industry. John Burton and Charles Krider try to predict the incidence of strikes in the public sector, while Donald Frey presents a model of the behavior of school boards in hiring faculty. The magnitude of the extra wage received by unionized public employees is compared by Daniel Hamermesh to that of private unionized workers in the same occupation. (Author)

Changing careers after thirty-five; new horizons through professional and graduate study by Dale L Hiestand( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author deals primarily with people who make a change in career orientation so distinct that the move requires at least a year of professional or graduate education. Chapters examine such topics as the changing nature of middle age; fields of study or endeavor (mainly social work, librarianship, elementary and secondary education, and other service professions) favored by middle aged students; reasons why men and women over 35 decide to enter or reenter professional or graduate school; and kinds of financial, academic, and family problems and adjustments experienced by such students. Seventeen case histories are presented to illustrate a wide diversity of motives, circumstances, and personal characteristics. Major findings include these: (1) most middle aged people who change careers were largely successful and satisfied in their previous work; (2) they tend to be dynamic individuals actively searching for new interests; (3) many people who return to work act with relatively little prior planning or guidance. Implications for education and guidance, theories of occupational choice, developmental psychology, and manpower policy formation, are discussed in the last chapter. An index and seven tables are included. (Ly)

High level manpower and technological change in the steel industry: implications for corporate manpower planning by Dale L Hiestand( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the role that high level manpower plays in the establishment of new technologies at the plant and industry level. The steel industry was selected as an appropriate industry to approach these questions due to: its considerable technological changes; its straightforward, easier-to-understand technology; its lesser degree of influence by governmental policy. The first stage of research involved extensive interviews with executives of five major steel companies and executives of six engineering and equipment companies. The study revealed that steel companies do not decide whether or not to undertake an investment program on the basis of manpower factors. "Technological change per se is almost never a central preoccupation of steel executives." Steel executives engage in continuous learning, with the learning pace accelerating as major technological changes and investments are imminent. The study showed that engineering firms were more concerned with manpower issues and the technological/managerial capacity of their high level manpower. In summary, top-level steel managers are needed to provide leadership, skill, incentives, and general climate that evoke and advance technological proposals; most manpower planning is a response to fairly predictable developments.
