The Dislocated worker : preparing America's work force for new jobs by William H Kolberg( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
This book examines the causes of worker displacement in the United States in the context of national economic change. It discusses the promising, through scattered, efforts already underway to help dislocated workers and outlines more far-reaching steps that can be taken with assistance of the federal Job Training Partnership Act of 1982. The book is a collection of essays and other comments by more than 50 contributors, including representatives of business, labor, and government who attended the National Conference on the Dislocated Worker convened by the National Alliance of Business. The contributors include the President of the United States, a governor, three mayors, a cross-section of the nation's corporate and union leadership, and high-ranking labor-management administrators from Germany, Sweden, and Canada. These contributors' works reveal the depth of the problems of industrial change and worker displacement and trace them to their root causes, while offering a showcase of programs and projects already under way to help dislocated workers. The writings are organized into 15 chapters covering the following broad content areas: mobilization of the public-private partnership, the economy in transition, labor-management models for dealing with the needs of dislocated workers, the Job Training Partnership Act, some private sector approaches, state responses to industrial shifts, community responses to economic dislocation, economic development strategies, lessons from abroad, lessons from pilot projects, strategies for preventing or delaying job loss, unemployment and stress, job search clubs, use of labor market information, and research and evaluation.

The Fourth R : workforce readiness : a guide to business-education partnerships by Inc., Washington, Dc National Alliance of Business( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
This guide is intended to explain the types of partnerships that business can form with education to prepare students to enter and make a successful adjustment to the demands of the workplace. The first chapter discusses the consequences for business of an ill-prepared work force and examines the issues of the quantity and quality of workers, with special attention to the problems posed by the dwindling entry-level work force and the increasing mismatch between workplace needs and worker skills. The return on business investment in education (including development of a literate and better-trained work force, a better business climate in the community, and a better national competitive edge in the global marketplace) are examined next. The third chapter, which is a case study in the development of a business-education partnership, outlines the history, outcomes, and lessons learned from the Boston Compact (a school-business partnership that was formed to improve attendance, reduce the dropout rate, improve performance levels, and increase college and job placement rates among students enrolled in Boston's public schools). Multilevel partnerships as well as partnerships in policy, systemic educational improvement, management, teacher training and development, the classroom, and special services are explained. Assessing community needs and building a school-business partnership are the focus of the final chapter. Appendixes include selected partnership profiles, an index of programs referred to, and selected references and lists of associations and organizations. (Mn)
Employment policies : looking to the year 2000 by Inc., Washington, Dc National Alliance of Business( Book )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
Over the next 10-15 years, the work force will change significantly in composition. The numbers of minority youth, high school dropouts, and teenage mothers--less well-educated segments of the population--will increase. Youth unemployment will rise, although the total number of youth will decline. Women, with their needs for child care and nontraditional employment, will account for the majority of labor force growth. The labor force will also be aging. At the same time, the workplace will change. From 5-15 million manufacturing jobs will be restructured; an equal number of service jobs will become obsolete. Disruptions from change will be great; the need for training and retraining will be significant. Business, public training institutions, school systems, private training institutions, and labor must work in partnership to provide the necessary education and training. The public must see education, training, and retraining as a lifelong process, vital to their working lives. Public/private partnerships are necessary to create jobs in distressed areas. A new employment policy is needed that encompasses traditional public training programs as well as public education systems. New forms of governance should be considered. Public/private institutions at all levels should be strengthened. Business will have to assume greater responsibility in training the work force. (Ylb)

Essential components of a successful education system : putting policy into practice by Business Roundtable( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
In September 1989, the Business Roundtable committed to a 10-year effort to work with state policy makers and educators to restructure state education systems and ensure that all students achieve at high levels. To guide this effort and achieve the 1990 National Educational Goals, the Roundtable adopted nine essential components of a successful education system. First, a successful education system assumes that: every student can learn at significantly higher levels and can be taught successfully; high expectations for every student are reflected in curriculum content, though instructional strategies may vary; and every student and every preschool child needs an advocate--preferably a parent. Furthermore, a successful system contains the following components: it is outcome-based; uses strong and rich assessment strategies; rewards schools for success, helps schools in trouble, and penalizes schools for persistent or dramatic failure; involves school-based staff in instructional decisions; emphasizes staff development; provides high-quality prekindergarten programs, at least for every disadvantaged child; provides health and other social services sufficient to reduce significant learning barriers; and uses technology to raise student and teacher productivity and expand learning access. This report describes state policies exemplifying these nine components and state-level strategies for achieving them, highlighting Kentucky's reform plan. An executive summary is appended.

Employing human capital : to achieve priority economic development objectives by Inc., Washington, Dc National Alliance of Business( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
The U.S. economy is undergoing a transition that may rival the changes produced by the Industrial Revolution. The general directions are clear: an ever smaller share of the nation's work force is employed in the manufacturing sector; service sector industries are the source of most new jobs; and some "high tech" industries have had explosive growth. Unfortunately, at a time when the United States is said to be entering an era of human capital, the gap between work force supply and demand appears to be widening. There will not be enough new workers to fill projected new jobs, and, without effective action, a large percentage will not be qualified. Business and government are working separately and in concert to close the human capital gap. State and local governments are central to making the link between economic development and human development. Local economic development practitioners are developing partnerships with local Job Training Partnership Act agencies, secondary and postsecondary institutions, private training agencies, and the private sector. Four areas of high priority for the economic development strategies of many states and localities are manufacturing modernization, high technology development, new business creation, and service sector expansion.
