The benefit of hiring our workers is that it makes good business sense. They are hard-working, consistent and enhance your workplace, as they are always positive and excited about the job. We are an untapped resource in a market that is struggling to find workers. The turnover rates are incredibly low, our absenteeism rates are low, and that lowers hiring and training costs. Our workers bring unique experiences to the workplace, which can help businesses improve productivity and in some cases lower costs. The Job Coach, a no cost trainer, works side by side with the employees to offer ongoing support and to ensure that the job is completed correctly and on schedule. That Job Coach is there to assist the worker in all aspects of the job and to help that worker succeed. The Job Coach also becomes a resource for other employees.
