healthcare: Employers Supporting

ACT Work Ready Communities is a solution for healthcare providers who are looking for a community approach to developing a talent pipeline for the long term. All aspects of the workforce—emerging, transitioning, and current—are considered. Employers in participating counties, regions, and states can count on the foundational workplace skills of individuals able to earn an ACT National Career Readiness Certificate™. Employers across America have found that the minimal time they invest in using the ACT NCRC® for hiring, promotion, and training yields positive returns.

Healthcare occupational profiles identify the tasks and skill levels required across providers and related industries. Occupational profiles are created by summarizing a set of related, very detailed job profiles. Job profiles allow a more in-depth understanding of the job-specific foundational skills needed for success in each position. As a result, employers are better able to identify and invest in employees who can make real contributions to the bottom line.

This website reports the ACT® National Career Readiness Certificates earned at the county and state level and the progress being made by those participating states and counties in the ACT Work Ready Community initiative. This site only represents data stored in the ACT RegiSTAR™ system, a web-based reporting and management tool for National Career Readiness Certificates.

State and national NCRC data runs from January 2006 through , while county-level data is starting from January 2012. State job profile data runs from January 2007 through , while national job profile data reaches back to 1993. Again, please note that county-level NCRC data collection began in January 2012 for WorkKeys Internet Version, and in July 2012 for pencil and paper assessments. State and national certificate totals include historical data prior to 2012.

WorkKeys® assessments are used across the nation, and many states have built their own Career Readiness Certificates based upon WorkKeys assessment results. You will find an asterisk denoting those states. This website will continue to evolve as the first two rounds of participating states give us feedback on what they would like to see -- and based on your feedback, as well.
