Learning organisations, lifelong learning and the mystery of the vanishing employers by Ewart Keep( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The learning organization has been promoted as providing a viable blueprint for an integrated approach to training and development. According to the literature on employer provision of lifelong learning opportunities in the United Kingdom (U.K.), relatively few U.K. work organizations have or are about to become learning organizations. Opportunities to participate in employer-provided lifelong learning activities are especially limited for the following groups: workers in lower-status occupations; workers on "atypical contracts" (workers with flexible schedules and part-time employees); employees of small and medium enterprises; older workers; and workers with relatively low skills and qualifications. Research shows that many U.K. employers perceive clear disadvantages in training workers in lower occupational groups above and beyond the immediate task. Neither have U.K. employers generally embraced individual learning accounts, to which the government hopes employers will be willing to contribute. Among the reasons underlying this lack of employer support for lifelong learning are firms' product market strategies, the persistence of routinized forms of work organization and job design, and pressure for maximization of short-term profits. A new policy approach to lifelong learning is needed that addresses these reasons and considers the often-limited demand for higher levels of skill in the workplace. (Contains 43 references.) (Mn)

Flexibility, quality and competitiveness( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper first provides a functional, financial, temporal and numerical definition of employment flexibility. It then briefly considers in what senses the UK labour market has become more flexible in recent years. Next, it addresses the dispute about the quality of goods and services in the UK in order to deal with the effects that various forms of labour flexibility might have upon quality, product market and competitive strategies. It is argued that the UK's approach of flexibility is one of the factors that has served to encourage at least some organisations to follow a cost-reduction route and also renders high trust, high performance models of work organisation and people management difficult to adopt and operationalise.--SCAD summary

Industrial restructuring and EU-wide social measures : broader lessons of the ECSC experience( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article examines the lessons from the experience of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) with regard to debates about managing the social consequences of industrial restructuring within the European Union (EU). In particular it looks at the implications for moves from sectoral to regional forms of intervention and from short-term social palliatives to a long-term proactive approach. It suggests that these developments may produce new tensions and in some ways hamper attempts to address the social consequences of restructuring. It is pointed out that the need to address sectoral considerations continues implicitly to inform EU policy-making, not least - as the ECSC case illustrates - as a consequence of the social and political symbolism of sectoral readjustment.--SCAD summary
