Essential Skills Success Stories

Taking time to work on Essential Skills often leads to success in the workplace and at home. It offers workers a bright future, while greatly improving day-to-day life. Essential Skills help people to carry out different tasks, give them a starting point for learning other skills, and help them adjust to change. This booklet includes six real stories about Canadian workers who have taken time to work on their Essential Skills. By improving their skills, these individuals were more successful at work and at home. Hopefully these stories will inspire others to work on their own Essential Skills. A guide to improving Essential Skills is included. It is based on what was learned from the workers’ stories.
