Work Ready Community

workreadyimage.jpgThe College of Southern Maryland is proud to partner with county governments and regional businesses to have the tri-county region recognized as an ACT® Work Ready Community (ACT® WRC).

The Work Ready Community designation certifies to businesses looking to grow or expand that Southern Maryland boasts a well-prepared and capable workforce that can meet their emerging staffing needs. It instills confidence that the region is a place where companies can grow and thrive, in turn creating jobs and fueling Southern Maryland’s economic engine on the road to recovery.

A vital component of the region’s WRC designation is the ACT® WorkKeys® National Career Readiness Certificate® (ACT® WorkKeys® NCRC®). The NCRC evaluates employees’ professional skills and provides a common framework for employers to measure and close skill gaps in their workforce.
