Foundations for a New Tomorrow: How To Bridge the Gap in Work Force Literacy
Department or Administrative Unit
U.S. companies face substantial challenges from abroad, and to meet these challenges they need workers who have the ability to learn on their own. Unfortunately, many workers lack the basic skills they must possess in order to respond to current and future changes. This article describes a new perspective on literacy in the workplace and presents a strategic approach to improving literacy. The approach includes determining what skills are truly needed, evaluating the current skill level of the work force, and tailoring education to meet the specific needs of particular groups of workers.
