Customized Employment

This is the Heart of Everything We Do!

Everyone Has A Place Where They Can Be Successful. Everyone.

Our Work is Based on an Unwavering Principle

All people, given the right support, can build meaningful and financially rewarding careers. The question is not if work is possible (it is!) but rather what work is the best fit for that person. Customized Employment is designed to answer this question, beginning with GHA’s unique process of Discovering Personal Genius.

Discovery is premised on the idea that tests alone – or even the observations of long-time helping professionals – are often not the best predictors of the skills, interests, capacities, and motivations of the individual. Instead, Discovery begins by meeting people in their homes and leads to an understanding of that person’s skills, interests, and supportive relationships – all of which are crucial to paving a path to employment.

Discovering Personal Genius culminates with the identification of three vocational themes that become the foundation for customized job development. The process tells us what we need to know in order to shape a successful position for the job-seeker and to move forward with job development.

This is Where the Magic Happens

Customized job development is more than a search for available positions.

Rather, it identifies opportunities for creating or individualizing jobs that benefit both the local business and the job seeker. These opportunities reveal themselves as the vocational themes of the job seekers are matched with the customized needs of businesses.

Once a match is made, GHA provides training and coaching in on-site work support as well as tools for long-term career development.
