7 Employer Engagement Employers play a central role in ensuring that the job seeker has the opportunity to enter the labour market. Employers should therefore be viewed as a customer of the Supported Employment service provider. The employer engagement process requires the service provider to be professional and mindful of the need for the employer to meet their business agenda, and to run their business in an efficient manner.
