Social skills and other behavior on a job site are often just as important as being able to perform the job itself. The way you interact with supervisors, fellow employees and customers is extremely important. Fixing mistakes in your work is much easier than repairing relationships or getting customers to come back after they have been offended by a rude employee. Other aspects of work behavior include honesty, cleanliness, appropriate language and working hard instead of hardly working.
Employability Skills Development
Employability Skills Development addresses these issues through a combination of video instruction, discussion. role-play, paid work experience and job exploration in which these behaviors are addressed as the primary areas of concern. Originally developed to assist special needs students in their school-to-work transition, the service could be modified to meet the needs of other groups or individuals. Interested parties should contact the Program Director to discuss modification of the service to meet their needs.
