While technical skills are still important to employers, the biggest concern of hiring managers is the diminishing soft skills of the workforce. Nearly 9 out of 10 companies in the U.S. report that the lack of these employability skills is THE most important factor in their hiring. Yet less than 20% of today’s employees demonstrate these crucial workplace skills on a consistent basis.
As the workplace continues to evolve, one of the key roles of workforce development is the upskilling of incumbent workers. One-third of all workers have limited basic digital skills while the lack of financial literacy skills costs an average worker almost $1,900 dollars per year. Aztec has the tools to help develop these and other critical skills in both new and existing workers.
Whether you are serving dislocated workers, career-shifters, or justice-involved individuals, the development of new skills is critical to their success. The cultivation of these skills and attainment of certifications will provide access to the living-wage and family-sustaining jobs that can change the trajectory of these job seekers in high-demand careers across the country.
