Give your team the skills edge by hosting UP Skills for Work training at your workplace. This workshop series will help your staff develop key employability skills to build their confidence at work.
The Workplace Delivery pilot program took place during Fall 2018, teaming up with employers across Canada in manufacturing, hospitality, finance, and social services. UP Skills for Work workshops were presented at 15 worksites with nearly 200 employee participants. Download the results summary.
Thanks to what we learned through the Workplace Delivery program, we are better equipped than ever to support employers looking to run UP Skills for Work soft skills training for their teams.

About Soft Skills
Soft skills (also called people skills) are the skills that hiring managers look for, and that workers need to thrive in any job. Together with essential skills, we call this workplace literacy. Research shows that workplace literacy training for employees translates to higher productivity, improved engagement and retention, better customer service and health and safety records, and fewer errors.
