Limited Capacity seats available

Work ethic - sometimes called soft skills, workplace readiness, or foundational behaviors – are the most in-demand set of skills for employers. Nearly 9 out of 10 hiring managers nationwide say work ethic is their most important factor in hiring. The challenge is that fewer than 1 in 5 candidates have these basic skills, and almost all job-readiness training is focused on academic and technical skills. However, new strategies in developing work ethic are making a huge difference in employability and retention across every population.

Discover the secrets that The Center for Work Ethic Development is using to help organizations around the world build the seven behaviors of work ethic. Through curriculum, certification, and consulting, they are equipping communities to prepare their local workforce for employment and life-long success.

This engaging and interactive presentation highlights simple training and leadership approaches that everyone can use.  By analyzing employer-based research, defining the seven behaviors of work ethic, and applying innovative teaching methodology, participants discover how to make lasting behavior change. Discover how you can build the foundational behaviors of work ethic and give employers what they REALLY want!

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the research around work ethic
  • See the impact of the work ethic gap in America
  • Apply at least three tactics to improve work ethic
