Skills for the Workplace
Skills for the Workplace are non-technical, critical employability skills needed in the workplace. Employers say that these kinds of skills are frequently a deciding factor in the hiring process. Employers want these skills in potential employees, and current employees need them for promotion and advancement. Some people think of skills for the workplace, as interpersonal skills, but these skills are truly much more.
WORKS and Wayne Community College offer a Skills for the Workplace training for current and potential workers in Wayne and surrounding counties. Participants in the class are evaluated on teamwork, appearance, organization, attendance, productivity, communication, cooperation, and various other skills. Completers leave with a certificate, a finished resume, an application tool and a full workplace skills evaluation.
The goal of the training is to raise awareness of what employers want in employees and to give participants tools they can use to develop their skills for the workplace. This student-centered training is hands-on and interactive and builds individuals’ skills through coaching, team-building and real world scenarios. On the final day of class, students apply what they’ve learned in practice interviews with local professionals engaged in the hiring process.
