In Wisconsin, more than 70% of people with I/DD are unemployed or under-employed. If this is going to change, employment service providers need to realize that “employing someone” is a business decision, not a social issue. Disability awareness, tax credits or subsidizing wages will not lead to more jobs for people with disabilities. Employers hire people who can contribute to their workforce. Job developers for people with disabilities must learn to identify business needs and help employer understand how our candidates add value to the workforce.
Customized Employment is an effective strategy for assisting individuals with significant disabilities achieve integrated, direct hire employment. Why should employers consider creating customizing jobs? How do we identify opportunities for the job seekers we service that match their preferences and skills? How do business needs impact the way we market our candidates and promote our program services?
This is workshop will answer these questions and help job developers reframe how they market their candidates and partner with employers. Sara Murphy, Director of WorkLink, TransCen, Inc. San Francisco-based placement service, will use case studies to illustrate how to target employment opportunities, open doors, and more importantly, how to identify possible opportunities and negotiate customized jobs with employers. Participants will leave with field-tested approaches and tools for successfully presenting candidates and negotiating jobs with employers.
