by Coughlin, Gregory F., Ph.D., Capella University, 2012, 97; 3502684
Abstract (Summary)

Community colleges will play a vital part in the education and training of U.S. workforce members aged 25–34 in the coming years. To achieve this goal, community colleges have partnered with local business entities to offer industry-specific training through workforce development training programs. While these partnerships have existed for some time, one of the elusive pieces of information about the success of these programs is employer satisfaction. This action research study implemented a revised survey instrument that was distributed to the businesses that are partnered with community college systems in one mid-Atlantic state. After data were collected and presented, conclusions were drawn and recommendations made about ways to improve employer satisfaction with workforce development programs and areas for further study.
