Work Readiness Programmes
A big challenge raised by Employers is the lack of “soft skills” many young employees have when starting at their companies. These soft skills include attributes such as communication, writing, business etiquette, presentation skills, IT knowledge, self management and conflict management skills.
While many employers believe it is the responsibility of educational institutions to provide work readiness programmes but the fact is that these institutions do not provide the environment where these skills can be developed.
Many companies run induction or orientation programmes for new employees, which can be run in conjunction with a work readiness programme.
Providing work readiness programmes result in increased performance levels and retention rates of new employees.
