Northwest entry-level worker study by Thomas Owens( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey elicited workers' opinions in five areas: (1) essential skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed on the job by entry-level workers; (2) the purposes, content, and delivery of training needed and desired by workers; (3) productivity; (4) workplace environment; and (5) employee benefits. Information was gathered through written surveys of randomly selected workers and companies in Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. A total of 9,328 workers in 1,342 companies were sampled; 1,857 workers in 468 companies responded. Of the respondents, 61 percent were female, 65 percent were white, and 17 percent Asian/Pacific Islander. Workers averaged 2-5 years in their jobs; 62 percent earned $3.85-7.99 per hour, and 24 percent earned $8.00 or more per hour. Some of the findings, organized in the five areas studied, are as follows: (1) entry-level workers agreed with employers on important skills and attitudes, and 90 percent of those surveyed said these skills and attitudes were already present; (2) drugs and alcohol were seen as problems; (3) 78 percent of the workers desire more training; (4) more than 75 percent of the workers had made suggestions to improve productivity; (5) 85 percent of the workers liked their work environment, although many thought they were not paid fairly; and (6) many workers lack benefits. Policy implications to be studied include increased training, the problems of illiterate workers, and needs for benefits and dependent care. (The survey form and 29 references are included.) (Kc)
Issues surrounding entry-level workers : a policy report by Thomas R Owens( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study examined innovative workplace practices in companies that employ significant numbers of entry-level workers. In Phase 1 of the study, a literature review was undertaken, and interviews were conducted with human resource directors in 58 companies in the Pacific Northwest nominated as exemplary in their work with entry-level workers. Employers reported shortages in numbers of qualified applicants for entry-level positions and concern over basic skills deficiencies. Nine areas of promising practices were identified: employee involvement; child care; family and community concerns; recruiting; training; supervision; motivation; business-education partnerships; and handicapped and special needs employees. Phase 2 consisted of a written survey of entry-level workers in randomly sampled companies in Hawaii and Oregon. It focused on their views regarding characteristics of today's work force, their perceived training needs, relevance of their high school training, ways to improve workplace quality, and their assessment of the relative importance of various worker benefits. Over 80 percent indicated they liked the place where they worked and got along with supervisors and peers. Recommendations to improve the workplace included improved pay and benefits; different management style; improved teamwork; and improved training. Recommendations were made regarding implementation of promising practices. (Ten references and preliminary findings are appended.) (Ylb)
The use of idea-based policy instruments in promoting school-linked service integration by Carolyn Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper analyzes the potential of a specific public policy tool to further principles of programs devoted exclusively to the Integration of Education and Human Services (iehs). Section 1 describes the nature of the problem in establishing the need for iehs. Section 2 describes policy tools currently used to implement iehs, introducing the concept of "idea-based instruments," or "idea tools" as described by Janet Weiss (1990). It identifies existing iehs policy tools that can be considered idea-based instruments and argues that these instruments must be part of any policy tool kit used to implement iehs. The third section explores how local policymakers operationalize idea tools at the community level. It presents findings from interviews conducted with professionals active in implementing iehs practices. Conclusions and directions for further research are offered in section 4. The study found that: (1) idea tools may be critical in translating iehs policies into systemic reform; (2) ideas travel laterally and vertically; (3) professionals in the Northwest United States are using a wide variety of idea tools--convening stakeholders, sponsoring conferences, and designing marketing plans; and (4) idea tools may work best in conjunction with other policy tools. Appendices contain names of the 7 focus group participants and 14 interviewees, the interview questions, and examples of iehs models. (Contains 27 references.) (Lmi)

Planning for New and Changing Occupations. Ideas for Action in Education and Work by Tom Owens( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Education and employment and training program planners were surveyed to determine how they planned for emerging occupations. Planners identified several formal and informal means used to collect information to evaluate economic, industrial, and occupational trends. Information collection was conducted in five categories: publications, advisory councils (private sector), personal contacts and experience in industry, other personal contacts, and local research. When asked how the information affects program planning, respondents most frequently cited as an example the impact of office automation, which caused them to integrate the use of microcomputers and word processing into the business and office cluster. Respondents offered concrete examples for improving information and making it more useful to them. The three areas targeted for improvement were upgrading the collection, presentation, and dissemination of data; sharing curriculum information; and collaborating more closely with industry.

Emerging Trends in Secondary Education by Larry Picus( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 4 stages, this paper, prepared by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (nwrel), examines trends in secondary education: a review of 11 major studies from the 1970's; responses from 320 Northwest high school principals to survey questionnaires; a telephone survey of 21 local, state, regional, and national observers of youth employment problems; and a review of nwrel program directors' views on such trends. Among problems identified by the studies are unresponsive school bureaucracies and inadequate curricula. The studies' recommendations include more focus on basic skills and greater responsiveness to student diversity and needs. Principals' questionnaire responses favored many of these recommendations but identified drugs, discipline, and absenteeism as more important problems. Youth employment observers from education, government, and the private sector responded to both general and specialized questions about youth employment policy in the 1980'S. Prepared to aid NWREL's planning process, this paper makes no specific conclusions. Further exploration of federal, state, and organized labor programs, and such issues as entry level job competition and job creation is recommended. Nwrel program directors were interviewed to determine what they see as emerging trends in secondary education and to identify program categories based on the degree of the program's involvement with secondary education. Relevant tables and charts accompany the document. (Pb)

What Service Teaches About Citizenship and Work: The Case of Americorps by Carolyn Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper reports on an exploratory investigation into some of the possible benefits of service participation. Using the national service program AmeriCorps as a case in point, the paper examines how the service experience might affect participants' citizenship development, workplace skills and career plans. Results are drawn from four focus groups, conducted in 1996, with a total of 24 AmeriCorps members, representing 17 programs in Washington state. Participants ranged in age from 18 to over 60, and all had completed one to two years of service. Findings suggest that new ways to assess AmeriCorps' impact should be considered, as the current strategy which concentrates primarily on measuring effects on the recipient community may underestimate program's value. Though not a comprehensive review of members' experiences notions, the study offers a provocative picture of possibilities, which suggests that more can be -- and is being -- accomplished by the program than is currently thought.
