The pandemic has changed all of our lives, but outside of remote work job and career counseling have stayed basically the same. This is a deadly mistake. This workshop for managers and staff will show you how to reinvent your work so you can help youth and adults not only get into or back into the workforce, but also do it in a way that reduces the risk of them getting the virus. Some of this work we can do ourselves while other parts of it require new partners. For example, we or our partners now need to do a wellness check-in to make sure our customers know the basics of getting and transmitting the virus. Many of the people we serve are not reached by government or the media so they need our help or our partners help to become informed. As people decide what job and careers to go after, we have to incorporate a risk and reward analysis as part of our employment counseling. This analysis will help them evaluate the health risks versus the rewards of different types of employment so they can make the best decision for their situation. We have to prepare people to have a safety mindset when they go to work so they can figure out how to do their jobs as safely as possible on an ongoing basis. When you reinvent your employment counseling so it becomes covid informed, you will play a critical life saving role as a workforce development professional! Don’t miss this workshop!
