Being work ready

Today many employers are looking for potential employees to have more than a qualification. They want new employees to be ‘work ready'.

The Business Council of Australia developed Being Work Ready: A Guide to What Employers Want to assist senior high school students and people helping them (family, teachers and career counsellors), to better understand what ‘work readiness' means from a business perspective.

The key to being work ready includes having the right: 

  • Values
  • Behaviours 
  • Skills 

Follow this link to the Business Council of Australia website. It contains excellent information regarding being work ready and a quick video clip that explains work ready values, behaviours and skills in more detail.
