From Welfare to Work : Corporate Initiatives and Welfare Reform
From Welfare to Work offers an analysis of how private corporations and industries can become effective partners with government in training and hiring welfare recipients for permanent positions. Using a case example of how Pennsylvania Blue Shield trained, hired and retained several hundred welfare recipients on its work force, the book offers a compelling success story and a broad discussion of welfare reform, public policy and corporate social responsibility. It also offers a practical explanation of the specific steps needed to establish such a program, including corporate tax incentives, business and government collaborations and the special needs of welfare recipients.
