IPS: Businesses

Two people shaking hands

A win-win for businesses

IPS connects businesses with skilled and dedicated employees. Employment specialists work to build relationships with businesses through in-person visits to learn about their culture, preferences, and needs. Not only do they strive to create a good match between the business and job seeker, but they also are available after a person is hired to assist with training and problem-solving to ensure the match is a success. A survey from the Job Accommodation Network shows businesses benefit from this type of approach.
