Some jobs, including those that only require physical labor, can be done by anyone with the determination and willingness to perform them. Unfortunately, hiring practices and secondary job requirements make it difficult for some candidates to access specific positions. This can make it harder for companies to find the ideal employee for certain roles simply because the candidate might be lacking in some minor areas of expertise.
Consequently, adult education has become a very important part of many communities in North America. For instance, the Nova Scotia School for Adult Leaning is working to help the more than 110,000 working-age Nova Scotians that do not have a high school diploma, according to the Halifax Herald.
Companies that don't want to rely on supplemental adult education (or have found such resources lacking in their areas) should consider instead turning to eLearning development. Digital lessons can be customized to a company's needs, no matter how basic those requirements might be. As such, even simple math and reading comprehension can be impressed upon employees who might be particularly well-suited to a position despite lacking some minor qualifications. Consider implementing a training software development program to fill in any educational gaps that might prevent your company from maintaining a balanced workforce.
