Employer Forum on Soft Skills

Northwest Michigan Works! is looking at the best ways to teach "soft skills" to youth and adults -- the skills that are essential for every job, such as teamwork, communication, and adaptability. Please join us for a discussion on the importance of these skills in today's workforce. We will demonstrate our new soft skills training program, Workplace Excellence, so you can provide feedback and guidance. Northwest Michigan Works! is committed to serving employer needs, and preparing workers with these critical employment skills is one important way that we can serve you. 

This Forum is available at two locations: 

Tuesday, November 30, 12:00 noon at the Petoskey Public Library (lunch provided) OR

Wednesday, December 1, 8:30 am at the Traverse City Michigan Works! Service Center (breakfast provided; this option is also available for virtual attendance).
