Learn Etiquette With WorkAbility 101

A class focussing on etiquette continues WorkAbility 101 from 8 a.m. to noon June 23. It will be the second of four classes. The first, which focussed on customer service, was a big success.

The third session on business ethics is scheduled for July 7, and the final class on communications is July 21.

Employers and participants can still save by signing up for the entire course at $50 for Alliance members and $75 for non-members. The per-class cost is $20 for members and $30 for non-members.The Charleston Area Alliance and the Community and Technical College System of West Virginia are teaming up to offer “Skills for the 21st Century,” a series of courses designed to help employees be better, more productive employees.

The goal is to offer businesses more skilled employees and help them reduce turnover. The class also is an excellent opportunity for employees and college graduates who want a better understanding of business basics.

Each “skill set” course includes four classes over a two-month period.

Future course and class themes will include basic personal finance, computer literacy, meeting facilitation, networking and team training.

These are portable skills workers could take with them their entire careers.
