This is one of a series of fact sheets developed by the Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick (LCNB) to explain the importance of Essential Skills in a variety of settings.
The authors explain that Essential Skills are transferrable across jobs and help people adapt to change in the workplace and in their lives. They offer examples of how each skill might be used in the workplace and offer suggestions for how an individual might improve that particular skill.
For instance, the skill of oral communication is important for giving and receiving instructions in the workplace. An employee might improve his oral communication skills by offering to lead the monthly staff meeting.
