What is Support Employment?
Our customized and individualized employment program matches job seekers with potential employers in ways that meet the needs of both. Through direct consultation with the employer, our customized services can produce employment through identifying job duties based on the interests, strengths, potential skills and needs of the job seeker. A new job may also be created which could possibly free up valuable production time for fellow employees.
Aside from helping to compensate for the labour supply and demand imbalance we see today, creating employment for those with diverse abilities addresses the social issues of poverty and isolation felt by many of those living with a disability. Employees with diverse abilities match traditional employees in performance, workplace safety and attendance. Most do not require special accommodations.
