- While the repeated global financial and economic crisis increased the uncertainty of business environment, the labor market continued to tighten and the unemployment has become the most serious social problem. To create more jobs for youth and improve working conditions for female workers, the Korean government has recently pressed public institutions to adopt three major initiatives: internship, high school graduate recruitment, and flexible workplace.
This paper examined how such initiatives have been introduced and measured how public institution workers perceived the utility and limitation of each initiative. The policy implications identified in this study can be summarized as follows.
First, the intern workforce often placed complaints about the difficulties of translation into a full-time position. Since the size of new recruits is limited, the translation into a full-timer is hardly possible to public institution interns. In addition, the irregularities of task assignments also caused complaints and conflicts in their performance evaluation. These indicated that public institutions have recruited and managed the youth interns without any personnel planning.
Second, public institutions significantly contribute to the employment culture transformation by recruiting more high school graduates. However, many of them have been employed to meet the request from government not the internal needs. In order to vitalize the recruitment of high school graduates, public institutions should analyze the value of individual tasks and try to place a right person on each position because over-qualified candidates often lose their work-motivation when they are assigned to simple tasks. Although such recruitment policy emphasizes their social responsibilities, the public institutions are able to autonomically determine the recruitment size of high school graduate workers to strategically match this workforce and organizational tasks.
