"Having applicants with work ready skills that match our jobs has helped reduce training time." - David Forgety, Human Resources Manager
Since April 2007 work-ready applicants have been joining our team with skills that match the jobs in our facility.
Since then, the company has seen shortened on-the-job training time, improved productivity with new hires that are meeting or exceeding learning and earnings curve expectations.
This pool of applicants is the single most valuable return on investment we have received by utilizing the WorkKeys system and Career Readiness Certificate.
Having applicants with work ready skills that match our jobs has helped reduce training time.
Since we have incentive based pay, this allows employees to earn at a quicker pace.
To date we have profiled 7 positions:
4 - shop floor
1 - supervisor
1 – mechanic
1 – office
The task list in the WorkKeys Job Profile report
- Helps us set expectations for new employees
- Is used as a checklist for new employee training.
- Is used to update job descriptions.
