This guide is for employers to use in planning future human resources strategies. Part 1 focuses on three practical strategies germane to most labor and skill shortage problems. The first chapter reviews challenges employers face. Chapter 2 presents two basic strategies for strengthening entry-level recruitment and staffing: strengthening the basics and broadening the recruitment net. An appendix presents issues involved in developing workplace testing programs. Chapter 3 reviews major issues in the design and implementation of basic skills programs. The fourth chapter discusses the importance of dependent care benefits, employers' responses, planning a dependent care benefit, and alternative program models. Part 2 contains case studies of five organizations that developed successful programs and policies in response to labor force changes: the Alliance for Employee Growth and Development, a joint human resources development venture; Highland Park Day Care Center, a consortium-based model for providing on-site child care services; Superior Technical Ceramics, which implemented an in-house basic skills program; Lancaster Labs, Inc., Which built its own on-site day care facility; and Motorola Inc., Which implemented basic skills programs. The case studies present a detailed account of the experience of each organization and outline key lessons and issues that emerged in program implementation. (Ylb)

The Job Training Partnership Act : a report by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With minor exceptions, the Job Training Partnership Act (jtpa) program is working well and is meeting its legislative mandates. The public-private partnerships that have emerged at the local community level and the strong leadership role assumed by the private sector representatives on the State Job Training Coordinating Councils and Private Industry Councils have been particularly instrumental in the overall success of jtpa. Available information indicates that jtpa is indeed helping those in need of its services--disadvantaged persons, dislocated workers, Native Americans, migrant and seasonal farmworkers, Job Corps participants, and veterans--and making a significant difference in their lives. The introduction of performance standards in jtpa has made it more efficient than previous efforts and has increased its acceptance by the public. Efforts to link jtpa with public assistance programs, economic development activities, and education, as well as creative attempts to assist hard-to-serve individuals, should receive Congressional support. This position paper includes 20 pages of specific recommendations concerning the overall implementation of jtpa, training services for disadvantaged adults and summer youth programs, dislocated worker programs, federally administered programs, and jtpa implementation in Puerto Rico. A nine-page bibliography and appendixes on jtpa programs in Puerto Rico, jtpa funding, program participation, and performance standards are appended. (Mn)
