WorkKeys is the tool for improving hiring
decisions, reducing turnover, and improving employee satisfaction and
productivity. MCCC's WorkKeys Service Center offers testing, assessment
and training for workers in all types of organizations. Developed by American
College Testing, Inc., of Iowa City, WorkKeys helps companies and individuals
identify and learn skills needed to fill specific jobs. The eight WorkKeys
skills are: Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, Listening, Writing,
Teamwork, Applied Technology, Locating Information, and Observation. These
eight skills can be benchmarked with ACT WorkKeys assessments. With the
results from these assessments a Job Profiler can determine the employees'
or potential employees' skill levels and where he/she needs to improve.
With this information, the College prepare a customized training program
for those specific skills where improvement is needed. Visit the WorkKeys website for more information at http://www.act.org/certificate/index.html.
One of the primary goals of the College's
Workforce Development Office is to help employers hire and retain qualified
employees, and build a stronger workforce for Monroe County. The use of
WorkKeys by businesses in hiring and training typically results in higher
employee productivity, higher job satisfaction, reduced turnover, and
improved quality. For more information, e-mail Barry Kinsey, Director
