By checking to see if there is an essential skills gap in the workplace, you put yourself in position to make improvements that are fundamental to success. This guide describes a process for examining your workplace (or your own job) to see if there is an essential skills gap and what you might be able to do about that gap.
The Learning At Work project of the Saskatchewan Labour Force Development Board (SLFDB) has produced this guide, developed in consultation with business, labour, agriculture, and other Reference Groups of the Saskatchewan Labour Force Development Board. The Guide is a tool to help employers, unions, and employees investigate how essential workplace skills are used in their own jobs and workplaces. Workplace literacy refers to essential workplace skills of reading, writing, computer competency, oral communication, interpersonal skills/attitudes, decision-making, problem-solving, math, and teamwork.
