Why You as an Employer Should Care About WorkReady...

On behalf of the Muhlenberg Alliance for Progress (MAP) and the entire local Work Ready Community team we are pleased to present information on how you can guide your employees toward educational options and skill enhancements.

As an employer, we are asking for your help in making our workforce the best it can be by encouraging your employees to take advantage of the programs offered.

We offer helpful information on ways employees can jumpstart their education and training. By doing so, these employees become more valuable assets through:

  • Enhanced job performance: productivity, innovation, decision making and teamwork
  • Increased company loyalty
  • Reduced turnover, hiring and training cost
  • Improved recruitment and retention

There are many ways employees can improve their skills: obtain a GED, enroll or re-enroll in college, improve their soft skills, obtain the National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) or secure necessary computer training for work or school.

To help your employees improve their education we have an Education Coach available to assist with questions and provide advice on how best to proceed.

We encourage you to review the information on this site and give us a call at 270-338-4102 if you have any questions. One of our staff will be happy to meet with you and provide our printed Toolkit to help you share information with your employees.

Thank You,
Muhlenberg County Work Ready Committee
