    Jenni now works at a local gas company using customized supported employment

    Customized Employment According to US/DOL: Customized employment is a flexible process

    designed to personalize the employment relationship between a job candidate and an employer in a way that meets the needs of both. It is based on an individualized match between the strengths, conditions, and interests of a job candidate and the identified business needs of an employer. Customized Employment utilizes an individualized approach to employment planning and job development one person at a time . . . one employer at a time.

    Unbundling & Flexibility

    Employers have typically met needs by bundling demands into job descriptions. These demands can create barriers for some job seekers. Customized Employment allows employers to unbundle demand and to take advantage of discrete competencies.

    Flexibility is a universal design strategy that acknowledges the reality of complexity in the lives of job seekers. When businesses offer flexibility, many barriers to employment can be overcome.

    The Unique Role of Discovery

    Marc Gold & Associates 23

    Comparative assessments and process often hit directly and negatively on the impact of a job seekers disability. The results can lead to exclusion from work and lowered expectations.

    Discovery is a qualitative process that avoids comparison by translating the individuals best features to employment possibilities.
