The “right” workforce is one which compliments the short- and long-term direction of the business and are not a hinderance to success. Business owners and leaders have indicated a major challenge to growth is employees with poor work ethic. Work ethic will be influenced through “soft skill” training to include: Problem Solving, Process Mapping, Team Building, Effective Communication, Active listening, and Conflict management to name a few.
How will one benefit from workforce development?
Employers will have a workforce with the skill set necessary to position short- and long-term success. Changes in employee work ethic will lead to organizational culture change to best insure a sustainable success. Performance areas which will likely change include productivity, attendance, and attitude. Furthermore, individuals seeking employment will be better prepared when entering the workforce and adding to the success of their new employer.
