1 CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT “STEPPING OUTSIDE THE BOX”

2 A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR PRESENTER

3 INTRODUCTION OF PARTICIPANTS & WHAT YOU WANT TO TAKE AWAY FROM THIS TRAINING

4 PURPOSE DISCUSS THE FORMALIZED DEFINITION OF CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT BY THE OFFICE OF DISABILITY EMPLOYMENT POLICY (ODEP) TOUCH ON CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT HISTORY GLIMPSE OF PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT HOW DISCOVERY IS AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF CUSTOMIZED & PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT HOW MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING CAN BE EFFECTIVE DURING THE DISCOVERY PROCESS

5 ODEP DEFINES CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT AS…. “A FLEXIBLE PROCESS DESIGNED TO PERSONALIZE THE EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A JOB CANDIDATTE AND AN EMPLOYER IN A WAY THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF BOTH” (ODEP, 2012) “CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT IS BASED ON INDIVIDUAL’S MATCH BETWEEN THE STRENGTHS, CONDITIONS, AND INTERESTS OF JOB CANDIDATES AND THE IDENTIFIED BUSINESS NEEDS OF AN EMPLOYER.” (ODEP, 2012)

6 CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT IS BUILT ON THE ASSUMPTIONS…… 1. EMPLOYMENT IS A RIGHT THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXERCISE. 2. EMPLOYMENT PROVIDES INDIVIDUALS A SENSE OF BELONGING TO SOMETHING LARGER THAN THEMSELVES. (FITTING IN)

7 CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT CAME FROM.. RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT INDIVIDUALS WITH THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DISABILITY WERE STILL UNDERSERVED. THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DISABILITY HAD THE HIGHEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE. SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT WAS NOT PROVIDING THE INTENDED RESULTS.

8 VERMONT VR-PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT CREATED BY VERMONT VR AFTER EVIDENCE-BASED RESULTS DEMONSTRATED THAT “RAPID” PLACEMENTS AND “WORK FIRST” WERE MORE EFFECTIVE.

9 WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT? IT IS AN APPROACH OF COMBINING RAPID PLACEMENT IN COMPETITIVE EMPLOYMENT SETTINGS WITH SOME VERY TIME LIMITED INTERMEDIATE STEPS BEFORE A FORMAL HIRE OCCURS.

10 GOAL OF PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT ALLOW JOB CANDIDATES & EMPLOYERS TO TRY OUT MATCH BEFORE COMMITTED PLACEMENT. (DUAL CUSTOMER APPROACH)

11 DUAL CUSTOMER APPROACH VR JOB CANDIDATE BUSINESS

12 “ONE JOB CANDIDATE, ONE BUSINESS AT A TIME”

13 PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT IS BASED ON… MOVING AT THE PROGRESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL

14 CUSTOMIZED & PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT CAN BE USED….. SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT JOB CARVING JOB CREATION NATURAL SUPPORTS SMALL BUSINESS STRATEGIES JOB SHADOWS SHORT-TERM TRAINING PLACEMENTS ON-THE-JOB TRAINING TEMP-TO-HIRE

15 APPROACHES TO CE & PE JOB CANDIDATE CONTRIBUTIONS, INTERESTS, & TALENTS DRIVE THE JOB DEVELOPMENT PROCESS/PROGRESS NOT WHAT JOBS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE COMMUNITY. NEGOTIATION OF A JOB FOR JOB CANDIDATES W/BUSINESSES ADAPTING THE APPROACH ACCORDING TO THE AREA (RURAL & URBAN) CUSTOMIZATION OCCURS BEFORE THE FINAL PLACEMENT JOB CANDIDATES ARE PRESENTED TO BUSINESSES NOT SERVICES FIRST…DETERMINE BUSINESSES NEEDS & THEIR BOTTOM LINE

16 WHERE DID CUSTOMIZED & PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT COME FROM? (DISCUSSION)

17 PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT CAME FROM VERMONT VR AND EVOLVED FROM…. PRE-VOCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS AND VOCATIONAL EVALUATIONS WERE NOT PROVIDING SIGNIFICANT OUTCOMES VT VR ALSO REALIZED THAT RAPID PLACEMENT SHOWED A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE INCREASE IN SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES BUSINESSES WERE ALSO CUSTOMERS OF VR BECAUSE WE WANT TO MEET THEIR HIRING NEEDS & HELP THEM BE MORE PRODUCTIVE WHILE SAVING THEM MONEY SO THE “DUAL CUSTOMER APPROACH” WAS DEVELOPED

18 WHERE DO WE BEGIN? CREATE INDIVIDUAL DETAILED VOCATIONAL PROFILE DETERMINE IDEAL CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT DISCOVERY PROCESS

19 WHAT INFORMATION DO YOU WANT TO SECURE FOR A GOOD VOCATIONAL PROFILE? GETTING TO KNOW THE JOB CANDIDATE REVEAL LIFE THEMES PROVIDE/OPEN OPPORTUNITY-OPTION DOORS SELF-AWARENESS FOR JOB CANDIDATES SELF-ANALYSIS & INVESTIGATION

20 HOW DO YOU GATHER THE INFORMATION? USE MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING STRATEGIES/TECHNIQUES + MORE: ASK JOB CANDIDATE “WHAT, HOW, WHY, WHERE & WHEN” QUESTIONS LEARN MORE ABOUT THEIR CAPABILITIES, CONTRIBUTIONS, TALENTS THROUGH INTERVIEWS WITH CANDIDATES, FAMILY, FRIENDS, COMMUNITY MEMBERS, PREVIOUS EMPLOYERS, SCHOOLS, ETC. OBSERVATIONS DURING INTERVIEWS, JOB TRYOUTS/SITUATIONAL ASSESSMENTS WORK EXPERIENCES BEYOND A COUPLE OF HOURS

21 KEY COMPONENTS OF DISCOVERY WHO IS THE PERSON? WHAT ARE THEIR CAPABILITIES, INTERESTS, STRENGTHS, TALENTS, & RESOURCES? WHAT ARE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS?

22 FOCUS ON ATTRIBUTES

23 QUICK REVIEW: DISCOVERY WILL HELP…. IDENTIFY INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOB CANDIDATE THAT THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT THEMSELVES HELPS US GET TO KNOW OUR JOB CANDIDATES HOW EMPLOYMENT SYNCS WITH THEIR PERSONAL LIVES MATCHES EDUCATION, CONTRIBUTIONS, TALENTS WITH BUSINESS NEEDS GIVES A “GLOBAL PICTURE” OF THE INDIVIDUALS WE SERVE

24 LET’S LOOK A LITTLE DEEPER INTO DISCOVERY

25 SPECIFIC PARTS OF DISCOVERY PROCESS CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTIONS PREFERENCES INTERESTS TASKS SETTING PRIORITIES SALARY/WAGE DISCLOSURE

26

27 DISCOVERY SECTION I: CONDITIONS DEAL BREAKERS WHAT DO THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL? WHY ARE THESE CONDITIONS IMPORTANT?

28

29 SECTION II: FOR CONTRIBUTIONS, CONSIDER… SKILLS (MICROSOFT OFFICE, AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE, FLUENT IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE, ETC.) EDUCATION UNIQUE KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS (WHAT MAKES THEM STANDOUT?) PERSONALITY TRAITS (PROMPT, DEPENDABLE, PROBLEM-SOLVER)

30 SECTION III: PREFERENCES WHEN ARE THE BEST HOURS OF THE DAY FOR THE JOB CANDIDATE TO WORK? WHAT TYPE OF WORK ENVIRONMENT DO THEY PREFER-INSIDE, OUTSIDE, OR A MIXTURE? HOW WELL DO THEY INTERACT WITH OTHERS? (PERSON-TO-PERSON, EMAIL, PHONE) WHAT IS THEIR PACE/SPEED IN COMPLETING TASKS? EXPECTATIONS OF COWORKERS AND SUPERVISORS

31 SECTION IV: INTERESTS

32 INTERESTS WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS THAT ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO MAKE THE JOB CANDIDATE WANT TO GO TO WORK DAILY? DIVIDE INTERESTS IN CATEGORIES THINK ABOUTT BUSINESSES THAT HAVE THE NEED FOR THE AREAS THE JOB CANDIDATE IS INTERESTED IN AS WELL AS MEETS THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS AND CONDITIONS

33 SECTION V: TASKS

34 TASKS WHAT BUSINESSES HAVE THE TASKS IDENTIFIED THAT JOB CANDIDATE CAN DO? WHAT TASKS CAN BE UNBUNDLED/BROKEN INTO SMALLER TASKS? WHAT EMPLOYER WILL ALLOW YOU TO UNBUNDLE/BREAKDOWN TASKS? HOW OR DO THE JOB TASKS MATCH THE JOB CANDIDATE’S CAPABILITIES, INTERESTS, STRENGTHS, CONTRIBUTIONS (IF THERE ARE NO BUSINESSES IN THE AREA, THEN DO NOT CONTACT THE BUSINESS ON BEHALF OF THE JOB CANDIDATE)

35

36 SECTION VI: SETTING PRIORITIES WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT & WHY? WHAT DO THEY WANT TO EARN? WHAT HOURS DO THEY WANT TO WORK? DO THEY NEED FLEXIBILITY? IF SO, WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE TO THEM? WHAT TYPE OF WORK HAVE THEY CHOSEN?

37 SECTION VII: SALARY/WAGE

38 SALARY/WAGE… FINANCIAL SITUATION/STABILITY HOW MUCH DO THEY WANT TO EARN? DO THEY NEED ADDITIONAL INCOME, AND WHY? WHAT’S THEIR REASONS FOR WANTING EMPLOYMENT? HOW WILL WORK IMPACT THEIR LIFE? WHAT DO THEY WANT TO BUY? SAVE? WHAT TRADEOFFS ARE THEY WILLING TO MAKE? WHAT’S THE DOWNSIZE OF WORKING? HAVE THEY SPOKEN WITH A BENEFITS SPECIALIST, IF THEY RECEIVE SSI, SSDI, MEDICAID, FOOD STAMPS OR VA BENEFITS?

39 SECTION IIX: DISCLOSURE

40 DISCLOSURE…. WHAT INFORMATION DO THEY WANT TO SHARE AND WHEN? WHAT CAN CRP, VRC SHARE WITH EMPLOYER? WHAT’S REASONABLE TO SHARE? WHAT’S NOT? WHY? WHAT DO THEY HOPE TO GAIN FROM DISCLOSING?

41 SO NOW WHAT?.......

42 QUICK REVIEW CUSTOMIZED OR PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT DISCOVERY PROCESS RAPID AND BETTER JOB PLACEMENTS

43 STILL REVIEWING…. CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT MATCHING JOB CANDIDATE’S CAPABILITIES, CONTRIBUTIONS & TALENTS WITH EMPLOYER’S NEEDS COULD BE USED WHEN JOB CARVING, JOB NEGOTIATION, SELF-EMPLOYMENT PROGRESSIVE EMPLOYMENT INTRODUCED/CREATED BY VT VR RAPID JOB PLACEMENT VS PRE-VOCATIONAL TASKS COULD BE OJT, TEMP-TO-HIRE, JOB SHADOWS OR WORK EXPERIENCES BEYOND 1 DAY WORK AT PROGRESS OF JOB CANDIDATES

44 HOW DO YOU THINK DISCOVERY PLAYS A ROLE IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING FOR YOUR JOB CANDIDATES? (DISCUSSION)

45 DISCOVERY & CE & PE OBSERVATIONS INTERVIEWS (JOB CANDIDATE, FAMILY, FRIENDS, ETC..) SITUATIONAL ASSESSMENTS/JOB TRYOUTS WORK EXPERIENCES BEYOND A COUPLE OF HOURS INTEREST INVENTORIES

46 LOOKING AT MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING IN CUSTOMIZED EMPLOYMENT ASK THE “WHY, WHEN, WHERE, HOW, WHAT” QUESTIONS WHAT ARE THE JOB CANDIDATE’S BELIEFS & VALUES? WHAT’S THEIR TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN? HOW DO THEY PLAN TO GET THERE? WHEN DO THEY PLAN TO START? WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO THEM? WHERE DO THEY START?
