Abstract

This study was undertaken to examine the Supervisor's span of control in the 1981 Summer Youth Employment Program's worksite monitoring unit. In conducting the study, interviews were administered to the worksite monitoring interns of the unit, the worksite monitoring supervisor and the coordinator of Program Development of the 1981 Summer Youth Employment Program. The interviewers discovered a number of problems. The study found that there 'vas indeed a problem with the worksite monitoring supervisor's span of control, and it did not lend itself to effective management. This paper suggests a number of recommendations to reduce certain factors which contributed to problems with the worksite monitoring supervisor's span of control, and how to increase productivity in the worksite monitoring unit of the summer program.
