February 05, 2019 9:34 AM | HVBF Administrator (Administrator)

Are you having difficulty finding skilled, hard-working and responsible employees for your business?  The Arc Baltimore provides Supported Employment services to over 500 employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities at many businesses in the Greater Baltimore area.  Many companies take advantage of the services and reap the benefits.  Some of these benefits include, job development, job coaching, Federal and State tax credits, and turnover prevention. 

The Arc Baltimore will work with your business to determine your personal needs and an employer and work with you to tailor their services to meet those needs.  A job coach will be provided who is well acquainted with the employee and work directly with them through orientation and provide one-on-one, on-the-job training and support until the person performs all the job tasks to the expectations of the employer.  Businesses who hire individuals with disabilities may be eligible for sizable federal and state tax credits.  Businesses that have a high turnover rate for lower level positions can prevent the hassle of constant rehiring by taking advantage of The Arc’s services and hiring employees who are eager for the chance.  Many supported employment situations last for decades in positions that otherwise experience considerable turnover. 

The Arc Baltimore can provide your company with loyal and dependable employees whose intellectual and developmental disabilities are outweighed by their outstanding attitude.  They are skilled, reliable and motivated.  They don’t just need a job; they want a job.  This under-utilized workforce can strengthen the diversity of yours.
