Site Purpose:

Work Eau Claire (WEC) is a volunteer, community-wide project designed to lead to “ACT” certification as a “Work Ready” county, which is based on completed “WorkKeys Assessments.”  The holder of WorkKeys Assessments at various levels can show an employer their level of “work readiness” in three areas.  A certification is also an important economic development tool that can identify a region as having the necessary skills that can benefit the current or future workforce.

Work Eau Claire is based on the ACT designated Work Ready Certification process.  In conjunction with the certification requirements, WEC will work to encourage employers, high schools, individuals, agencies, and commerce-related non-profits to engage with all aspects and levels of the required WorkKeys assessment tools.  

All employers who support the recognition or requirement of WorkKeys-related parameters, will be listed on this website.  Further, this website will be used to encourage additional employers, schools, businesses, agencies, non-profits, etc., to sign-up to be a “supporter.”  This is to show the widespread level of support for a community in order to achieve the required employer metric toward certification described above.  Company support forms are collected ahead of display on this site which includes company names, contact, address, emails, and telephone numbers.  Companies are given the option to NOT appear on the website should they prefer.   As a further benefit, companies are also listed for a “Badging Program” at Chippewa Valley Technical College, which encourages students to fulfill activities relating to the College’s Core Values.  Companies are notified of this and may opt to NOT be listed should they prefer.  Companies on this website may also be referred to informally as “partners.”

Revenue

There is no requirement or cost for a company to support this effort and be listed on this website.  There is no revenue which results from the certification process described above.

Costs associated with this website are borne temporarily by the Chippewa Valley Technical College as part of the college’s mission to contribute to skilled workers to the workforce. Future organizational structure is desired to grow to a point of self-sufficiency or other partner arrangement.

Revenues which may result from the Work Ready effort for Chippewa Valley Technical College include the proctoring of the WorkKeys Assessments, contracting with employers to deliver this service, technical assistance, and contracts for “Profiling” services which can be provided by CVTC faculty. Costs will adhere to CVTC normal contract training and technical assistance rates.
