As the economy changes, competition increases and technology advances, but one thing remains the same. You’re only as good as your team. To be successful in any business, a skilled and flexible workforce is required, but locating and developing that team isn’t always easy. WorkOne’s Job Opportunities and Business Services (JOBS) Program can help.
The JOBS Program utilizes WorkKeys, a nationally renowned system of job profiling and assessments to identify the tasks and skills that are most critical to perform a job.
WorkKeys job profiles bring the specifics of a job into focus. By linking job tasks with WorkKeys assessments, employers can pinpoint benchmarks they can use for hiring. Each applicant will be evaluated using WorkKeys assessments that provide objective and reliable information about each applicant's skill level. Candidates that meet the skills levels identified by the job profile will be referred to you, allowing you to hire employees that are qualified to do the job.
