The Importance of Our Employment Services

For individuals living with developmental and intellectual disabilities, RISE Services, Inc. Utah offers several valuable employment services. From interview practice and on-the-job training to employer partners and community involvement, our employment services provide several advantages. If you or a loved one is looking for meaningful employment, check out these benefits of our helpful career services. 

The Importance of Our Employment Services

Employment Training

We are proud to offer comprehensive employment training for every step of the job process. Once individuals are placed in a position, our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are there to assist, aid, and support individuals in any way they need. Whether it’s filling out paperwork or learning how to perform a specific task, we make sure both the employee and employer feel confident in this new role, and then we step back so the individual can enjoy the satisfaction of working independently.

Customized Employment

When an individual living with a disability is looking for help finding a job, we take the necessary time to discover their skills, find out their interests, and match them with a position where they can grow and thrive. This flexible strategy offers custom-tailored services and support that will meet the employment needs of our clients as well as the needs of our partner employers.

Life Skills Restoration

At RISE Services, Inc. Utah, most of our services offer more than one benefit. With our employment services, the adults we serve learn valuable job skills along with helpful life skills that will serve them throughout their entire lives. The skills and abilities we teach include the following:

  • Social skills
  • Meal preparation
  • Personal hygiene
  • Time management
  • Relationship building

Employer Incentives

We are thankful for the employers who are willing to partner with RISE Services, Inc. Utah, and provide meaningful employment to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. To make this process easier for our partners, we offer valuable employer incentives that assure them of our commitment to finding quality individuals to work for their companies. These incentives include benefits like these:

  • Fidelity bonding insurance for individuals with criminal histories and other high-risk job applicants
  • Partial wage reimbursement to offset associated costs for training adults with developmental disabilities
  • Tax credits for employers who hire individuals with developmental disabilities

Community Involvement

We help our clients find and maintain meaningful employment in the community in which they live. Our goal is to support and train adults so they can become more independent, but it’s also to help individuals see how they are a valuable part of their local community. Providing jobs for adults living with disabilities also helps other members of the community learn that everyone can be a productive member of society and deserves to find fulfillment in a job they enjoy.
