ACT Work Ready Community

The Work Ready Community certification is a nationally recognized program that pairs employers’ support with assessments of employees and job seekers. Tom Green County is on track to become the second Work Ready Community in Texas, which will help attract new business to the area. Further, local businesses can use the program’s tools to hire and promote employees into optimal positions. That leads to reduced training costs, lower turnover, improved operations and customer service, and higher profits.


When you register your business as part of the WRC initiative, you are committing to finding top-notch candidates whose skills are certified. The first step: recommending that your applicants earn the National Career Readiness Certificate. When you make that recommendation, not only are you able to instantly widen your talent pool, you gain the opportunity to quickly pinpoint exactly the type of candidate your business needs to efficiently and successfully fill that open position. As a result, your hiring decisions lead to increased workplace productivity, higher return on investment and cost savings. To complete your employer registration form, click here.
