Workplace Learning Project, Phase 2: Bridging Employer and Employee Needs in British Columbia's Capital Region (2010)

This report focuses on the second phase of the Victoria READ Society’s Workplace Learning Project, which was launched in response to ongoing concerns of area businesses about managing change and recruiting and retaining promising employees.
During the fall of 2009, READ staff worked with four businesses from the grocery and hospitality sectors to field test an Organizational Needs Assessment (ONA) process. All participating employers offered a variety of employee training, but none of them provided training in English as a Second Language, reading or writing.

In addition to providing an outline and analysis of the initiatives undertaken as part of this project, this report provides a composite list of recommendations made to the four participating employers in areas related to six basic skills – reading, writing, document use, oral communication, thinking and problem-solving, and numeracy – and two additional areas of interest – computer use and training plan preferences.
