Workplace literacy refers to the skills needed for effective performance in today’s businesses, including literacy, language, numeracy and ICT skills. Workplace literacy is all the more challenging given that almost 80 million adults in Europe – a third of the workforce – have only low or basic skills, and estimates show the percentage of low-skilled jobs in the EU is expected to decrease by nearly 30 % between 2010 and 2020.

This means that today’s jobs require better skills and more education and that in the future the workplace will become even more literacy-dependent. Thus improving workplace literacy level is the foundation of companies and workforce development.
