Have you say: Is Workplace Essentials Skills Training Worth the Investment?

Our October webinar highlighted the final results from UPSKILL: Essential to Excel, a Pan-Canadian demonstration project measuring the impacts of workplace essential skills training on workers and firms.

In this presentation, learn about the study, which enrolled over 100 firms and nearly 1500 workers in the Accommodations sector across the country in eight provinces. The findings indicate that essential skills training led to large positive impacts on workers’ skills, job performance, employment and earnings, and a number of business outcomes of firms.

Thanks to our colleagues at the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation, David Gyarmati and Michael Dowie, for taking time to share the project findings and thanks to everyone who attended the live session.
