Description

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.show more
