The COVID pandemic has forever changed the workplace as we know it. Millions of jobs are being lost as others have been radically transformed. While important technical skills are eroding, what the biggest concern employers have are the diminishing soft skills of the emerging workforce. Nearly 9 out of 10 hiring managers in the U.S. report that the lack of these soft skills are THE most important factor in their hiring, and yet less than 20% of today’s employees demonstrate these crucial work ethic behaviors on a consistent basis. Even more alarming is that most, if not all, of an employee’s on-the-job training is focused on their technical skills. But there is a viable solution to the growing work ethic gap that can improve the employment outcomes for the youth we serve. In this workshop Josh Davies, the CEO of The Center for Work Ethic Development, will provide 5 key strategies for developing the essential work ethic skills with your youth. These proven strategies are already being used by leading organizations to improve performance, retention, and job satisfaction. Discover how you can build work ethic and set your youth up for success in this post-COVID world.
