Successful businesses recognise the value of recruiting a diverse workforce that reflects the customers and communities they serve.
Supported Employment gives you access to a skilled and diverse workforce
All employers strive to employ the best person for every role in their organisation and to retain valuable and effective staff for as long as they can. Finding and keeping good workers can be a challenge with unemployment now at historic lows. Today, more than ever, businesses need access to skilled and committed employees.
People with disabilities and long term conditions are frequently overlooked in our communities and struggle to take their place in the labour market. A supported employment agency can work with you to diversify your recruitment process and add great talent to your organisation.
Employers tell us that the people they have recruited through supported employment programmes have become some of the best employees in their organisation: dependable; dedicated; hardworking, and productive.
