Training for Businesses: Workplace Basic Educational Skills

Reading, writing, math, communication and problem solving. These basic educational skills are an essential component for success in the workplace and in life.

Yet, studies show between 25 to 40 percent of the current workforce lacks basic skills. Workplace illiteracy costs U.S. businesses an estimated $225 billion a year in lost productivity.

CCBC believes educated employees are not only valuable to employers, but to society as a whole. Employers who provide skill enhancement courses are able to develop a strong workforce which in turn, assists in reaching business goals.
