What is Supported Employment?
It is defined as services that assist an individual with obtaining and maintaining employment through Career Training and person-centered approaches. This means that we vet all of our job seekers through a flexible process called Customized Employment, whereas The PLUS Company, Inc. seeks to understand an individual's strengths, needs, interests, through various assessment tools, interviewing, internships, job shadowing, informational interviewing, and programs such as the Career Assessment Program or Sector-Based Training programs. By working with an employer to understand their hiring needs we then determine how the individual can positively impact their business through customized employment proposals, job placement, and on-site support known as Career Training, all while simultaneously meeting the goals and needs of the individual and the employer.

What is Career Training?
Career Training is an insurance policy for ensuring retention and success on the job. Career Trainers provide on-site training and support for both short and long term. Through a process of systematic instruction, performance measurement, developing natural supports, implementing task analyses, and gradually fading overtime until the individual is independent on the job has proven to be the winning recipe for success.
In a nutshell, we ensure placements are a success by:
1. A process of discovery and understanding of both the individual and the employer
2. Making the right job match
3. Providing on-site support and training for the individual
4. Making Continuous improvements and fading support to achieve independence
