Best Practices in Supported Employment:
Choice & Control
Employment support is guided by the job seeker to achieve their career aspirations.
The job seeker securing employment receives the same rate of pay and benefits as other employees doing the same job. Individuals with competitive positions receive their paycheques directly from the employer.
Partnership & Mentoring
Job seekers, employers, and direct service providers determine the individualized strategies for providing the support that will assist in career enhancement. Ultimately, services will facilitate in maintaining job satisfaction for both the job seeker (now employee) and their employer.
People experiencing disability are socially and economically included in their community.
Employment supports and services are timely and responsive. Appropriate support is provided for job seekers to achieve successful employment.
Employment supports are individualized. Service providers negotiate to meet the unique needs of the employer and the specific skills of the job seeker, one person at a time.
Employment supports are as unobtrusive as possible and fade or may fade over time by building on community support and social capital.
The needed support is available to all stakeholders over time to ensure that people maintain employment stability and achieve career enhancement.
Continuous Quality Improvement
