Summary
  • In this new volume of the Professional Practice Series - the first to be published by Jossey-Bass - Manuel London brings together a group of research and practice experts to show how such leading companies as AT & T have responded to demands for change with programs that enhance career opportunities for individuals and stimulate organizational growth. In thirteen original chapters, London and his contributors detail how industrial and organizational psychologists, human resource professionals, and consultants have created innovative human resource development and training programs. These programs go beyond the traditional emphasis on interest surveys, career tracks, and interview skills to train employees in the abilities that actually create new jobs within organizations - skills such as entrepreneurial aptitude, work flexibility, and a value-added orientation
  • Employees, Careers, and Job Creation shows how to predict the career opportunities that will open up in an organization's future, assess employee skills, develop training goals, and overcome such barriers to success as employee resistance to learning. It also offers examples of how organization and community-based support programs can assist displaced workers in the event layoffs prove inevitable
