AbstractEmployee development programs (EDPs) are workplace adult education programs which focus on encouraging personal growth and improving confidence and self-esteem through the provision of leisure-based programs. EDPs are determined by employee needs, offered free of charge, and conducted outside working hours. EDPs were first implemented in the United States as part of the collective bargaining agreement between the United Automobile and Aeronautical Workers and the Ford Motor Company. EDPs are now being offered to employees in the United Kingdom and Australia as well. This article focuses on two EDP programs in Australia: the Geelong program and the Yarraville program. Benefits of the EDPs to the companies include the following: improved morale and team working; greater commitment from employees to the company; improved industrial relations; lower labor turnover, absenteeism, and stress; more positive attitude toward change; creation of a culture of learning within the organization; and improved effectiveness of job-related training. The EDPs provided employees with the following benefits: improved confidence and self-esteem; renewed or new interest in learning; reduction in stress; and improved life and career prospects. Programs may be delivered in various ways ranging from "taster" workshops to 4- to 6-week introductory programs. Some of the courses that were offered in response to employee surveys included first aid for the home, introduction to computers and the Internet, low-fat cooking, and machine sewing. (MN)
