Training & Development

Speed up an employee's time to full productivity using WorkKeys assessments and KeyTrain curriculum (opens new window) to identify and close skill gaps. Targeted training makes the most of your training dollars by pinpointing specific areas for employee improvement, producing better results with lower overall costs. You will be able to make concrete recommendations for advancement based on employee strengths and development needs.

By benchmarking key attributes of a position, the Talent and Fit assessments also can be used as powerful tools for career laddering and succession planning.

In one case, we had an employee who went from an entry-level position packing springs in shipping boxes to eventually operating our most sophisticated CNC equipment. In addition to finding occasional 'diamond in the rough' employees, this testing is helping us build career ladders for our employees based on their training plans and rising skill levels.

Once they realized WorkKeys was created by ACT—a reputable organization in testing—it made it that much easier for them to buy into the system.
