Employment of the Next Generation of Worker
Join us for this lunch event with iJAG presenters, Carly Voltz and Caitlin Eyth. iJAG (Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates) places Specialists in public schools to work with students facing barriers to success by teaching them life and career skills, supporting their education and helping them graduate, and preparing them to start a career path after high school. As part of the Advancement team at iJAG, Carly & Caitlin work with employers to connect them with students from beginning levels of career exploration to apprenticeship, internship, and other work-based learning opportunities for older students. This work requires iJAG to know what skills employers need in their workforce and how to get students excited and engaged with what employers have to offer.
In this presentation, Carly and Caitlin will cover:
- Skills of the future workforce: what do they have and what do they need
- Retention: what are good companies doing to retain employees, particularly in high turnover industries
- Culture: what are new employees expecting to see in the workplace and what are they finding when they get there
- Mentors: the power of relationship in engaging new and potential employees
- Trauma Informed Care in the workplace
