Skills Bank

As part of their CRC initiatives, many states have developed queryable databases of WorkKeys and CRC results. These databases have become valuable planning tools for educators, economic development agencies, local and state WIBs, and governors. They are used to demonstrate both the existing skill levels of incumbent and potential employees, and the trainability of the general workforce.

A perhaps unintended consequence is that the existence of these databases also indicates a systematic and committed approach to workforce and economic development that many employers who are considering moving into a region find an incentive.

A template to develop a database is available from many states. A new "front page" on the template will make the database unique to your program. Visit the NC Talent reserve site to see what is possible.
