Preparing for the Future: Employer Perspectives on Work Readiness Skills

The UMass Donahue Institute recently collaborated with the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education (MBAE) on a project designed to inform educators and policy-makers about the work readiness skills that employers expect of Massachusetts high school graduates, and to describe the skills and characteristics these corporations require for entry-level positions with potential for growth and advancement. Institute staff facilitated focus group discussions with representatives of a range of employers across the Commonwealth. Findings from the focus groups are presented in MBAE’s report, "Preparing for the Future: Employer Perspectives on Work Readiness Skills."
