The Missouri Career Center is spreading the word in local counties about the benefits of being Certified Work Ready. By showing potential developers and businesses your area will provide a strong, competent labor force, you increase the appeal of setting up shop; that’s according to Jo Ann Lane, Business Services Representative at M.C.C. Getting certified starts with the National Career Readiness Certificate.
Even if a community’s work force is not yet graded; Lane offers a solution.
Getting the N.C.R.C provides national certification for workers who lack a college degree or tech training background and is a broad based grading system, spanning the full spectrum of employment.
On a larger scale communities can direct potential developers to a website with hard, Work Ready data, showing the certification rating of the local work force.
To find out how to make your town or community a work ready area, or to test for the N.C.R.C, log onto the Missouri Career Center website.
