Work Ethic Training, To Gain Employable Skills


The Situation

Young teens and adults just getting started in the employment arena often lack basic employable skills needed to acquire and maintain gainful employment in today's society. Research reviled 85% of employees who lose a job, do so because they lack good work habits, rather than lacking appropriate skills. Factors most often cited for job loss include tardiness, absenteeism, failure to follow instruction and inability to get along with supervisors or fellow workers.

Integrity and ethics are a part of good work habits. Skills together with good work habits create demand in any occupation or employment. Technical skills are important, however today's employers look for reliable employees with the ability to communicate effectively, work on a team, resolve conflicts, confront ethical dilemmas and manage their time in an effective manner. These are employable skills.

Parents and teachers who demonstrated good foundational skills for character have mentored many young adults and high school students by example. Students who learn the importance of being reliable early on usually practice employable skills as principle work ethic for school work and bring that same standard to the employment arena.
