SACL  Employment Services seeks to identify the specific needs of your business operations and to identify how an individual with diverse abilities can meet those needs.
This is accomplished through Job Development Services and Employment Support Services.

Job Development Services

Job Development Services involves the use of assessment activities that provide invaluable material for matching a job seeker’s interests, skills and the abilities to the right job.   The needs of the employer may result in creating a customized job.    Customizing a job involves restructuring strategies that result in job responsibilities being customized and individually negotiated to fit the needs of both the employer and the employee.

Employment Support Services

Employment Support Services are activities that promote successful training of an individual to a new job, adjustment of tasks, retention and advancement.  Supports can include assisting the employee with understanding the job culture, industry practices, and work behaviours expected by the employer. Training and orientation services are available for staff as well as the person with a disability.  Ongoing support and routine follow-up with the employer and the employee ensures continued job success.

Employment Services taps into a capable labour market that helps raise your profit margins because: CES.Tyrone
