Hiring Options

To support a new employee's initial training and adjustment to the work environment, we will provide up to 100% job coaching. Once the inidividual is comfortable at his/her job, the coaching hours typically are reduced to about 20% of the employee's work hours.

You can also enable job-readiness through skill assessments. An individual who is preparing for employment will do a temporary work practice on location at your business while an Abilities United trainer assesses his/her skills and work behaviors.
