Georgia Work Ready

Georgia Workers

The Work Ready assessment is administered by ACT's nationally accredited WorkKeys® system and measures both core skills and work habits. Core skills assessments measure skills in applied mathematics, reading for information and locating information, three skills that are highly important to the majority of jobs in the workplace. The work habits assessment measures work-related attitudes and behaviors in areas that are trainable and coachable, such as carefulness, cooperation, discipline and drive.
Three simple steps to earning your Work Ready Certificate:

  1. Choose a location: Select your county from the Get Started list on the right to find your nearest assessment center. Call the number provided to schedule your free Work Ready assessment.
  2. Prepare: Review support and instructional materials, along with sample questions, available at no cost to you (see links to right).
  3. Take the assessment: Allot approximately four hours to complete the full assessment and bring a non-graphing calculator for the applied mathematics section. You will receive a copy of your scores at the end of the session; your actual Work Ready Certificate will arrive by mail. Work with your test administrator if you need assistance in assessment-taking computer basics.

Work Ready Certificates are awarded based on the lowest level earned in any of the three core assessment areas, though individual scores in one or more sections may be higher.

  • Bronze indicates a minimum score of three in all three core areas

Georgia Employers

To successfully compete in a global economy, companies must have access to long-term, qualified labor pools. Georgia Work Ready was designed to build the nation's best workforce and ensure Georgia companies have the talent they need to stay ahead of the competition.

Benefits of Work Ready

Georgia Work Ready can help you hire the best people and boost your bottom line. It's available at no cost for companies meeting minimum hiring requirements and is easy to access through the state's network of technical colleges. Georgia companies can implement Work Ready two ways - through job profiling and Work Ready Certificates.

Work Ready Job Profiles identify the job tasks and skill levels necessary to be successful in any job.

Designed to help Georgia employers build the right workforces, Work Ready job profiling allows companies to work with an authorized job profiler to identify the required job tasks and skill levels for each position. By comparing job profiles with individuals' Work Ready Certificates, companies can make reliable decisions about hiring, training and program development. Normally a $2,000 value, profiling is conducted at no cost for employers that meet minimum hiring criteria.

Businesses of any size can take advantage of Work Ready to improve their hiring processes. While larger companies should have a job profile completed before listing the Work Ready Certificate as a part of their hiring criteria; small companies can use occupational profiles (available via the link to the right) and request job candidates complete the Work Ready assessment as part of the job application process.

Companies match those profiles to employees' Work Ready Certificates - which measure core skills - to ensure the right person is placed in the right job every time.

Based on ACT's nationally accredited WorkKeys® system, the Work Ready Certificate measures both core skills and work habits.

  • Core skills assessment measures skills in applied mathematics, reading for information and locating information, three skills that are highly important to the majority of jobs in the workplace
  • Work habits assessment measures work-related attitudes and behaviors in areas that are trainable and coachable, such as carefulness, cooperation, discipline and drive

Most of the state's technical colleges offer additional assessments based on companies' needs for a small fee. These assessments include applied technology, business writing, listening, observation and teamwork.

Employers can easily verify an applicant or employee's Work Ready Certificate through the link to the right. You will be prompted to input the Work Ready Certificate number provided by the individual.

Companies implementing Work Ready make an investment of their employees' time to develop strong job profiles. This initial investment can reap great rewards for years to come including:

  • Improved hiring procedures
  • Reduced turnover
  • Reduced training costs
  • Increased productivity and profitability
  • High employee morale

In fact, a recent survey among companies that are using Work Ready found that 90 percent would recommend the initiative to others and 78 percent said that Work Ready helps them "find higher quality employees."
