Future jobs : solving the employment and skills crisis by Edward E Gordon( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pervasive disconnect exists between the job/career culture and the present economic reality in America. This book offers powerful strategies for stemming the employment crisis and proposes comprehensive solutions for businesses, government, and job seekers alike. More than 30 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up on looking for a job. Undoubtedly, the massive economic downturn after the financial crisis of 2007-2008 is a key factor in this situation. But the U.S. job market has stalled because our nation is failing to produce workers with the right skills, not because we cannot create enough jobs for the workers. This book offers an economic and historical perspective on the evolution of jobs and careers, explains how technology has permanently altered the U.S. job/labor market, and provides practical information for businesses seeking qualified workers, educators preparing students for careers, unemployed or underemployed individuals, and those interested in changing careers. The book examines the problem of the mismatch between individuals' skills and employers' job needs from the perspectives of both employers and employees or prospective employees, offering comprehensive regional solutions to the issues each group faces. The author reveals the most promising jobs and careers of the next decade for early-career job seekers and workers with established careers looking to change their path, and provides potential solutions to the jobs and skills disconnect in America, including education reform, business and government policy changes, and regional public-private partnerships. --
The need for work force education by Edward E Gordon( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational problems underlie the crisis in the high-tech workplace. Insufficient expenditures for workplace education result in low productivity. Technology requires a skilled work force; the chief competitive advantage for a nation will be its skilled workers. Workplace literacy has been a half-hearted effort. Investment of billions by U.S. business in new state-of-the-art technology will not increase productivity unless parallel investments are made in employee training. Basic literacy is a 20th-century phenomenon driven by the needs of a more urban, industrial economy. The work force literacy gap is fueled by high school graduates who are functionally illiterate for basic entry-level positions and by increased numbers of poorly educated minorities and immigrants in the labor force. Some businesses have creatively responded to the crisis with effective, high-quality work force education initiatives. One such company is the suburban Chicago plant of Clorox, which uses the Individualized Instructional Program mastery-learning tutorial model. Another part of the work force literacy effort is taking place in the public schools. Business is mobilizing to help the schools prepare future employees through creative partnerships. Significant work force education trends that will take the nation into the next century include every student's completion of high school, increased financial commitment to public education, higher achievement standards, and businesses' investment in training and development.
