The committee is rolling out the grading rubric below to area schools and businesses. Participating businesses have already stated that they will use the rubric to outline expectations when hiring new employees and at annual reviews.  Posters will be displayed throughout the plants.

 

The committee will be asking area schools to display the poster and to discuss soft skills expectations in the classroom.  Schools are being asked to consider making work ethics a portion of the students' class grade.
