What is Job Coaching?

When an employer decides to hire an individual that would benefit from job coaching, several things happen. First, we compare the job requirements to the qualifications of those applicants interested in a job. We maintain an applicant pool and are selective in screening these applicants for their ability to successfully perform the required job duties. This process of job matching helps us to ensure satisfactory placements with high job retention rates.


Next, a trained supervisor is sent to the job site to learn the procedures necessary for satisfactory completion of the job tasks. This supervisor, or "coach" is offered at no charge to the employer or to the employee.

Then, after the coach is familiar with the tasks, the hired applicant is brought on site and training begins. This coaching process guarantees the employer has no loss of quality or productivity during the training process. The coach will remain on site with the employee until the coach and employer are satisfied with the performance of the new employee.

Finally, a period called "fade out" begins. Fade out at the job site means the coach will leave the employee periodically during working hours. This is the beginning of the final phase of separating the coach and the employee. At the end of fade out, the employee will be self-sufficient and integrated into his/her particular job setting. For the duration of the employment, an employment specialist will make contact twice a month with the employee/employer to ensure that job duties continue to be performed successfully. Like the job coaching, there is no charge for this service. If at any time problems develop at the work site, the job coach and/or the employment specialist will be available to provide various services that are directed toward supporting the successful employment of our consumers.
