Building Foundational Skills in a Post-Pandemic World


CEO, The Center for Work Ethic Development

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 technical skills are still important, 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.  As we prepare our students for work-based learning opportunities, these are the skills they need to develop before they leave our classrooms. The good news is that there is a viable solution to the growing work ethic gap that can improve the employment outcomes for our students.

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 that employers demand. These proven strategies are already being used by leading schools and organizations to improve performance, retention, and job satisfaction of their graduates. Discover how you can build work ethic and set your students up for success as we transition to a post-pandemic world.
