3:30pm to 4:15pm


The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed the workplace as we know it. Millions of jobs are being lost while 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 percent 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 impedes the employee’s growth and your park’s success. In this session, Josh Davies, the CEO of The Center for Work Ethic Development, will provide 5 key strategies for developing the essential work ethic skills in your workforce. These proven strategies are already being used by leading organizations to improve employee performance, retention and job satisfaction. Discover how you can build the work ethic of your team, even in this post-COVID world.
