Workplace literacy

According to results of the Adult Literacy Survey conducted in the mid 1990s, almost half of the New Zealand workforce lack the necessary literacy, numeracy and language skills to live and work effectively in our society.

How do these figures affect workplaces?

High absenteeism, low staff retention
Poor communication skills between employees
High number of errors on job orders and stock control sheets
Poor understanding of workplace documents
Unacceptable number of near misses and accidents
Poor staff engagement and staff motivation

What are the benefits of improved literacy skills for an employer?

Effective written and oral communcation at all levels
Improved ability to read labels, instructions and directions
Improved use of technology
Improved staff participation and engagement
Improved efficiency and productivity
Improved health and safety compliance
Improved customer service
