Every business leader (owner, executive, manager, etc.) struggles with the declining work ethic and the entitlement mentality of their new emerging employment base. Eric Chester is the only business keynote speaker who focuses on developing a work ethic in the emerging workforce and he’s written the only business book for leaders on improving work ethic since 1904.
Since 1998, Eric has been known by millions as the premier expert on the emerging workforce. As an award-winning keynote speaker and a bestselling author, he was the first to explain the differences the new enigmatic generation brought to the workforce, and he emerged as the “go-to” guy when employers wanted to know how to recruit, train, manage, motivate, and retain them in the workplace. Since most people now recognize the differences this age group has introduced to the workplace, Eric has evolved his program into one that addresses the core problem that is eroding the foundation of America’s way of life: the lack of a sustainable work ethic.
Having addressed more than 2000 audiences from a plethora of industries over the past 25 years, Eric’s programs are fluid, teeming with information and strategies, and impeccably aligned with innovative multimedia technology that visually reinforces tools, concepts, and solutions. He is dialed-in to the mindset of this burgeoning generation, frequently appearing on national media (Good Morning America, MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, ABC News 20/20, etc.) and is interviewed in major publications (Los AngelesTimes, Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Workforce Magazine) to provide insight and perspective to business leaders and concerned adults.
Eric is the President of Reviving Work Ethic, Inc., helping leaders to develop a work ethic in the emerging workforce to promote better performance, increase productivity and decrease turnover in their business. He is the author of the 2012 book Reviving Work Ethic: A Leader’s Guide to Ending Entitlement and Restoring Pride in the Emerging Workforce, the first book of its kind since 1904.
Eric Chester is also the Founder of The Center for Work Ethic Development, a firm offering cutting-edge curriculum and online training resources for leaders, high school and college students, workforce training centers, and all levels of employees. His book BRING YOUR A GAME TO WORK – Seven Values That Will Make Every Employer Want to Hire You and Fight to Keep You is the centerpiece of an innovative training program that teaches work ethic values to teens and young adults.
As a keynote speaker, Eric Chester holds the prestigious CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) credential awarded by the National Speakers Association, its highest earned designation. His client list includes Dairy Queen, Harley-Davidson, Wells Fargo, Allstate, and Alcoa. He is a 2004 inductee into the CPAE(Council of Peers Award of Excellence) International Professional Speakers Hall of Fame, an honor shared by less than 2% of all professional speakers in the world.
Eric and his family reside in Golden, Colorado.read less
