WHAT IS SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT?

Supported Employment is a service in which people with disabilities are assisted with obtaining and maintaining employment. AtWork! provides Employment Consultants to match qualified candidates to the needs of an employer. We support the job candidates through the application process, interviewing, on-boarding, training, retention of employment, as well as on-going career growth. The Employment Consultant also provides training and support to co-workers and supervisors on disability-related topics as well as how best to work with the employee.

WE FIND JOBS THAT MATCH YOUR TALENTS & INTERESTS

AtWork! believes that everyone – including people with disabilities – can benefit from the transformative power of employment. Your AtWork! Employment Consultant is focused on one thing: aiding in your successful employment. They will be available every step of the way: working with you one-on-one to find the right job for your talents, abilities, and interests, checking in regularly, visiting you at your job site, and aiding in learning new tasks. We’ll even assist in resolving problems if they arise. AtWork! provides all the training and support you’ll need to overcome the obstacles and be successful in your new job.

In addition to your employment, we’re also a pathway to connection. We’re here to assist you in getting to know your employer and coworkers, understand your workplace culture, learning your job duties in a way that makes sense for you, and supporting you until you feel comfortable and ready to succeed in your position.

THE FOUR STEPS TO JOB SUCCESS

Your Employment Consultant partners with local businesses to find your job match. They will bring you and businesses together for interviews, assist in the decision to accept or reject the offer, and negotiate the employment offer and pay rate.
While you work on mastering your new job, we'll provide on-the-job training and support for you, your coworkers, and your circle of support.
Your Employment Consultant will support you through job coaching, advocating for you through any problems that arise, and check-ins as needed to ensure continued success.
