Essential Skills in Canadian Workplaces (2007)

Final Report

This document summarizes the results of a survey of 1,500 Canadian employers carried out early in 2007 to examine perceptions surrounding Essential Skills in the workplace.

The authors note that while awareness of the term seems high, employers are more likely to cite job-specific skills as examples of Essential Skills, rather than seeing it as a common set of transferrable skills required for any job.
