Teaching the Teachers - Manufacturing + The Future of Work

Teaching the Teachers - Manufacturing + The Future of Work

Date: Tuesday Mar 5, 2019

Time: 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Location: Wagstaff, Inc. 3910 N Flora Rd Spokane Valley, WA 99216 Get Directions

Event Description:



*Due to the popularity of our programs, attendance is limited to educators only*
Teachers, counselors, advisors - join us to learn about the intersection of Manufacturing and the future of work!
In this workshop, Wade Larson - Chief Human Resources Officer - will introduce instructors to Wagstaff, what it does, and the employees who work for it. Diverse opportunities in a concept-to-production facility will be highlighted, as well as the future of working in industrial manufacturing.
We will then continue to discuss what Wagstaff sees as current challenges in today's workforce, the forecast for tomorrow's workers and their needs, and how Wagstaff can partner with educators to continue to build those workers to succeed in the future.
Food and t-shirts will be provided.

The Future of Work: What Students Need Today, What Employers Need Tomorrow
The workplace of tomorrow is a moving target. Much of the knowledge, skills and competencies required today will be obsolete by the time today's students hit the workplace. Even so, employers are stuggling with new employees who enter the workplace without the requisite skills to be successful in their positions. Not only is there a lack of key qualitifications, but even some of the basic skills expected of employees are lacking among newer employees. For example...
- Employees struggle with interpersonal and written communication skills

- They have challenges with problem solving, critical thinking, and analyitcal capabilities

- Few have reasonable ability to deal with conflict, especially with coworkers and managers

- Time management and personal accountability for results are challenges

- Showing up to work late and calling in sick are common problems among younger workers

Wagstaff recognizes the need to partner with educators to look ahead and identify opportunities to enhance tomorrow's workforce. Through open dialogue with instructors, parents and students, Wagstaff believes that we can improve the training and preparation of today's students that can improve these opportunities and qualities for tomorrow.
