Literacy Needs in the Workplace (1999)

A needs assessment conducted for the Learning at Work Project.

One of the goals of the Learning at Work project managed by the Saskatchewan Labour Force Development Board, is to investigate the literacy needs of the Saskatchewan workplace from the point of view of industry, including both business and labour, and across the different sectors. The purpose of this report is to provide details of the findings and to raise the issues which will form the basis of the industry vision of workplace literacy and of the recommendations for future initiatives to the SLFDB and to two funding agencies, the National Literacy Secretariat (NLS) and Post-Secondary Education and Skills Training.

The investigation of the literacy needs in the Saskatchewan workplace was undertaken in two ways :

1- a telephone survey of 200 small-to-medium-sized businesses in Saskatchewan
2- in-person interviews with business, labour and industry representatives
