WIN

WIN (or the World Wide Interactive Network) is an online instructional curriculum for the workforce. It addresses eight critical WorkKeys skills areas: Listening, Observation, Information, Writing, Applied Mathematics, Applied Technology.

Matching employees and the jobs they have the skills to do is the purpose of the WorkKeys system, a new innovation developed by ACT. Jobs are profiled, and then the skills required and the competency levels of those skills for those positions are set. Through WorkKeys, prospective and current employees' skills may be assessed and evaluated. Matching employees with the jobs they have the skills for leads to less employee turnover, increased productivity, cost reductions and greater job satisfaction.

If employees' skills do not reach the levels required for the jobs they apply for or are currently working in, WIN is a solution to review the skills that are needed to improve performance on WorkKeys. Locating information on WIN is completely interactive, self-directed and learner-friendly. Individuals may access WIN 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from any Internet-capable computer.
