ACT Work Ready Community
Program Aligns Workers With Needed Skills
Led by our Aspire program, Johnson County, Indiana is a participating Work Ready Community and is actively engaged in earning a certified status.
ACT Work Ready Community is a national framework to build community-based eco-systems to link, align and match America's workforce to jobs in demand right now. The program uses what is called the ACT Workkeys and National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) to help match workers' skills to jobs.
The program helps reduce hiring costs, improves retention, increases hiring effectiveness and helps them seek better applicants within the community in which they are located.
For Prospective Employees
Getting the certification helps them to find a job that matches their skill set which means they are more likely to keep that job because it aligns with what they can actually do.
The NCRC program and test prepares students for workplace success, helps to close the skills gap, certifies them and their skills and helps industries recognize their unique abilities.
