Information about WorkKeys for Employees
ACT WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system available through Wiregrass Georgia Technical College that helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retain a high-performance workforce. ACT WorkKeys offers assessments that measure foundational and soft skills, as well as specialized assessments for targeted individual needs.
As part of ACT’s Work Readiness System, Wiregrass has helped thousands of people in high schools, colleges, professional associations, businesses, and governments agencies build their skill levels to increase global competitiveness and develop successful careers. These assessed skills are required of virtually all jobs at all levels.
Wiregrass offers the WorkKeys assessments on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. The WorkKeys assessments must be scheduled online through Register Blast. We must have a completed registration form and payment submitted online no later than the Monday morning of the week assessments are provided. None of the ACT WorkKeys assessments can be taken more than two times in a 30 day period.
All WorkKeys assessments provided by Wiregrass are administered on computer through our Testing Center in Berrien Hall. On your scheduled Wednesday, the WorkKeys assessments will begin at 8:30 a.m. Please arrive 15 minutes early and you must have a current picture I.D.

Employers who use the job profiles and assessments experience reduced overtime, turnover, and training time; increased productivity with employees whose skills better match the job’s requirements; and fewer legal challenges on hiring and promotion decisions because the WorkKeys job profiling system is in compliance with the Uniform Guidelines.
