Employers offered WorkKeys information

The Louisiana Ready Work Network will host a training session about how the ACT WorkKeys certificate can save employers time and money in the hiring, training and promotion process.

Finding the right person for the job, someone who is trainable with the foundational skills needed, is getting harder and harder for hiring professionals. ACT WorkKeys Profiling analyzes specific job tasks and links the required skill level with the ACT WorkKeys Assessments to pinpoint benchmarks for hiring, recruiting, advancement, and training.

School board members recognized

The theme of this year’s celebration, “School Boards Matter! Launching the Next Generation,” reinforces the unique role school boards play in promoting and advocating for quality education and the ownership they take for governing their local public schools.
