address titled Giving Employers What They Want: Work Ethic and will deliver a breakout
session on Work Ethic: Making Common Sense Become Common Practice. Training Magazine

The idea for the Revving up the Workforce conference came from the 2015 Kentucky
Chamber report that stated 27% of Kentucky s Workforce challenge is that employers
have trouble finding people with good soft skills. The conference topics address
workforce ethics and essentials skills that are key to the future of your business,
community, and region.
