Customized Employment

Customized Employment individualizes the relationship between job seekers and
employers in ways that meet the needs of both.  Each job seeker’s unique strengths, needs,
and interests are thoroughly discovered so they can be fully utilized to the benefit of both
employee and employer. This consumer driven model of job-development can be a very
successful alternative for clients with complexities versus the traditional, labor-market driven approach.
