Workplace Literacy

Workplace Literacy

Workforce development programs boost job satisfaction, employee retention, and productivity.

In today’s economy, technology is transforming every field of employment. Many businesses require their employees to take on additional work responsibilities and improve their job-related skills. Employers know that a productive workforce is critical to helping their businesses remain competitive — and that ongoing workforce development is the key.

At Literacy Pittsburgh, we build customized programs for employers to raise the skill level of their employees. Our educational offerings include programs on English, math, writing, workplace communication skills, and cultural awareness. Programs are developed with employer and employee goals in mind. Instruction is delivered on-site in a small group setting.

The benefits for participating companies are significant. Employees receive a big boost in self-confidence, and employers experience increased productivity, improved morale, and reduced turnover.
