Employers Find your Perfect Fit

All employees placed by Employment First are held to the same expectations, rules and processes as non-disabled individuals. Statistics show employees with disabilities are ideal employees. Employees with disabilities have been found to provide: equal or higher quality and productivity, equal or lower turnover and unscheduled absences, equal or higher co-worker job satisfaction, and equal or lower safety incidents.

Every job seeker undergoes a personalized and detailed assessment of strengths and desires which results in job matched that increase likelihood of long-term success. We provide disability etiquette training, pre-start employee profile briefing with supervisor and access to employment First safety support and site surveys.
