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.
