Work Keys

Recognized by companies worldwide, the WorkKeys® system by ACT provides employers a reliable method to assess employees' job skills relative to specific jobs within the company.

WorkKeys has "profiled" over 7,000 jobs throughout the nation. These profiles include a breakdown of specific skills needed to perform each job successfully, as well as an indicator of what level of performance is necessary. Workers can be assessed in up to 10 different categories, depending on the skill requirements of the specific job for which the employee is being assessed.

These 10 categories are:

  • Reading for Information
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Business Writing
  • Writing
  • Locating Information
  • Teamwork
  • Observation
  • Listening
  • Applied Technology
  • Readiness
