Supported Employment – Employment & Retention
Your DRS VR counselor will help you create an Employment Plan that will guide Rise Staffing’s team in the search for your job. It is our mission to use this guide as an outline but be prepared for our Employment Consultants to dive deeper to discover and identify your strengths and interests during your Rise Staffing intake. It is important for us to learn YOU and your abilities for the perfect employer match. We complete any necessary assessments; work with you to strengthen work skills, life skills, communication skills, or self-help skills.
Supported Employment Services help you to:
- Match your skills and interests to various types of jobs that are available.
- Compose resumes and fill out job applications to apply for positions of interest.
- Practice your interview skills.
- Be successful in your workplace by working with you and your employer.
Rise Staffing has a team of skilled Job Developers/Employment Consultants (EC) that help our individuals find ideal employers. Your EC will hold an intake with you to come up with a plan, and will then go to work to find a great job. Your EC will work with community employers to find the right fit and help you through the interview process, hiring process, and then fade over time as you reach the successful employment milestone.
The traditional labor market approach, matching people to an existing job opening, is not always a practical employment solution for people with disabilities. When required to compete against applicants without disabilities for a job opening, or having one’s skills and abilities compared against an existing job description, people with special needs don’t measure up. However, when Rise Staffing’s individualized approach is used to represent a person’s contribution to employers searching for those contributions, skills; abilities, and personal characteristics, employment becomes a reality for everyone. Customizing an experience or employment setting enhances the opportunities for participation. We work closely with many Tulsa and Tulsa area employers to custom-tailor positions that maximize potential.
Rise Staffing has years of experience individualizing the employment relationship between employees and employers in ways that meet the needs of both.
