BUSINESS PARTNERS

employU offers people with disabilities a path to a meaningful career. Every client has a team of staff members dedicated to preparing them for employment through resume building, application guidance, and interview preparation. We build relationships with each individual in our program to find the environment best suited to their personality, job skills, and strengths. We then strategically match businesses with our clients to establish mutually beneficial experiences.

When business partners hire our clients, they are not simply hiring an individual, they are hiring an experienced team of professionals. employU provides ongoing support for a minimum of 3-5 months, depending on the client’s needs, to ensure a high rate of job retention (85%).

Job coaching is also available upon request. An employU job coach will accompany a new hire through the established business orientation and training process. Our coaches are skilled to work with all types of personalities and abilities and will assist business partner trainers in the onboarding process of our clients so they can learn and execute the responsibilities of their position successfully. Coaches will collaborate with business partner trainers to teach clients in a manner they understand and can relate to. The coach is available to work with the new employee as much as needed and slowly tapers off service as they become more confident and independent in the tasks.

STEPS TO BECOMING A BUSINESS PARTNER

Become an On-The-Job Training Host Business

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is an opportunity for business partners to mentor a person with a disability, helping them develop the skills needed to realize their career goals. There is no liability to our business partners regarding insurance or wages as employU is the employer of record during a client’s OJT experience.

Once a client completes an OJT, the business partner may extend a job offer without incurring any fees from employU. Additionally, our team will assist in the transition and provide additional training or coaching if needed.

The average length of an OJT is six to eight weeks. Training length is based on employer needs, and difficulty of the job. Although employers are not required to offer a job at the completion of an OJT, extending a job offer to a candidate is always a consideration.

There are also tax incentives to working with someone that has received services from Vocational Rehabilitation. Click here to learn more about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program
