If an employer is experiencing difficulties with staffing, training, production, quality assurance, or if there is just not enough space in the employer’s facility to complete specific jobs/tasks, then Options Inc. can be the solution! Remember, and believe, that a person with developmental disabilities can be a valuable member of the workforce and is frequently overlooked by most employers. With the right job match, the people we serve can be employed and become one of the most respected, motivating, inspiring, and valued employees in the business. Although it is the goal of Options Inc. for employers to hire the people served thru supported employment program, there are other options that employer’s may utilize that may better suit the needs of industry while still providing employment opportunity to people served by Options, Inc.
Outsource Work Agreements
Employer identifies the job/task, timeline, and specifications for which the task is to be completed. A price is agreed upon and a contract is developed. The work is performed, at Options’ facility, and is completed according to specifications. Options Inc. assumes responsibility for staffing, training, oversight, and all payroll related activities/liabilities. This option is often a very helpful and cost effective solution to taking highly skilled workers off task to perform episodic tasks that may not require their particular high level skill
