The Problem

The main purpose of this study was to determine what shall be the canton core curriculum for the office worker whose duties involve decision making, human relations, and the expert use of electronic and computerized machinery and data.

Need for the Study

America, land of plenty of everything except available secretaries, file clerks, keypunch operators, and just about any other office skill you can name. Or so it may have seemed if you have looked around for good ones lately. (Especially if you have been looking for really good temporary skills). Where did they all disappear to?

It seems that growing companies simply cannot get enough of the office skills they need. That is why the market looks so thin. Maybe even invisible. Until you call Olsten. We make it our business to have skilled, conscientious temporary office people ready to fill in when and where you need them. You pay only for the work that needs doing. It is the profitable thing to do these days. All it takes is a phone call.

The above clever advertisement by Olsten Services who specializes in labor pools and other office services from coast to coast nay be predicting the future of the business world's ability to attract and hold competent workers, skilled in the operation of compact computerized equipment, 'master decision-makers" and personality pleasers.
