Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO CREATE A COMMUNITY APPROACH FOR A LONG RANGE MECHANISM FOR DEALING WITH VARIED PROBLEMS CONCERNING EMPLOYMENT IN MERCED COUNTY. THE PROCEDURE WILL BE DESIGNED SO THAT IT MAY BE USED AS A MODEL FOR USAGE IN OTHER COMMUNITIES. THE PROJECT WILL BE CONDUCTED BY TOCONIS & ASSOCIATES, A PERSONNEL SERVICES FIRM. THE INITIAL STEP IS TO SURVEY PERSONNEL DIRECTORS AND BUSINESS EXECUTIVES TO IDENTIFY MERCED COUNTY EMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS AND POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS. A PERMANENT VOLUNTEER TASK FORCE WOULD BE ESTABLISHED OF PERSONNEL EXECUTIVES AND REPRESENTATIVES OF APPROPRIATE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. THE TASK FORCE WOULD REVIEW SURVEY DATA, MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS, AND BECOME AN ON-GOING COMMITTEE AND SOUNDING BOARD FOR DEALING WITH COUNTY-WIDE EMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS. THE EFFORTS OF THE TASK FORCE WOULD RESULT IN INCREASED EMPLOYMENT IN MERCED COUNTY, IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EMPLOYMENT IN THE COUNTY, RAISE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF THE LOCAL LABOR POOL, AND PROVIDE IMPROVED COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION AMONG LOCAL EMPLOYEES AND EMPLOYMENT RESOURCES.
