ACT WorkKeys

In partnership with ACT, LCC offers the WorkKeys job skills assessment system that helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retrain a high-performance workforce.

WorkKeys offers a complete solution for employee selection and development.

Our powerful solution includes both foundational and soft skills, enabling assessment of the full potential of applicants and employees. The tools in this comprehensive system can be mixed and matched to meet diverse organizational needs. Our job analysis solutions allow for the establishment of organizational guidelines and benchmarks for employee selection and development.

From screening, selection, training, development, and succession planning, employers can use ACT WorkKeys assessments at every stage of the employment cycle.

WorkKeys helps job seekers prepare for education, training, or a career.

Because test questions are based on situations in the everyday work world, WorkKeys scores help job seekers compare their skills to the skills real jobs require. These scores help employers choose the most qualified candidates for their jobs.

Successful completion of WorkKeys assessments in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information can lead to earning ACT's National Career Readiness Certificate(NCRC), a portable credential earned by more than 1 million people across the United States.
