Offered through eastern North Carolina community colleges, WorkKeys is a program administered by ACT - an internationally recognized educational assessment and testing organization. WorkKeys helps identify aptitude and build on it. The program can help your business find and keep the right people in the right roles. It can help you pinpoint the skills of current employees to maximize their potential and value. The program helps employers and employees benefit each other by lowering the risk of job loss for employees and helping employers develop employees' skills.
WorkKeys is an assessment system that measures real-world skills, and is the basis for the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC). The NCRC is awarded based on assessment scores in foundational workplace skills such applied mathematics, reading for information and locating information.
Many larger companies have implemented WorkKeys programs to improve their ability to match people with jobs, to help motivate employees and help increase productivity.
