Skilled workers are the key to growth and expansion for any company and Work Ready Lucas County is a program designed to identify highly skilled workers, provide an opportunity for individuals to upgrade skills and provide employers with a pool of Work Ready employees. Work Ready Lucas County uses the National Career Readiness Certification program designed by ACT Inc. to measure and certify a person’s skills in applied mathematics, reading for information and locating information – essential skills for workplace success.
In order to encourage job seekers to invest time and energy into upgrading their skills and achieving a National Career Readiness Certificate, OhioMeansJobs Lucas County needs employers who recognize the certificate as a valid measure of workplace skills or who recommend that applicants have the certificate when applying for open positions. There is no obligation to employers who publicly support a better skilled workforce beyond providing contact information for verification purposes.
