FA Cup: McCarthy and Warnock put emphasis on work ethic | Football | The Observer
'We've done all right this season through bloody hard work, graft. We've got some good footballers who have done us proud, but they've worked hard, and if we ever drop those levels of work and work ethic and standards, we'll struggle. Sheffield United are a good side and if we don't work as hard as we've done and play as well as we've done, we'll get beat.'
So "work ethic" could be uncountable?
So "work ethic" could be used in an "uncountable form"?

So, does "a focus on work ethic" sound okay to you?
To me work ethic is being industrious, applying yourself to work. Work ethics would be the moral principles.
If you say "I don't like their work ethic", you're implying that they have the same work ethic, which they don't.
