have budget limitations, how can we access your materials?
EMP gives scholarships to individuals who find themselves unable
to attend an open workshop because of budget restrictions. We also
believe that we offer great value and that if we can help you do
your business better, you will do more business with us. Finally,
we will work with you to assist you in soliciting funds from sources
you may have available.
will benefit from the training you offer?
EMP's training is designed to help the staff and management responsible
for finding jobs for your consumers. Ultimately it is your consumers,
your employers and your community who will most benefit as the people
you work with get employment.
consumers are changing, we are getting more people with more employment
barriers, what can we do?
EMP specializes in job development for people that are hard to serve.
Give us a call and tell us what you are facing and we can make some
need to increase our revenue at the agency. How can you help?
We have seen USA state agencies SSI/DI reimbursements go up as they
use our materials to increase their employment outcomes and individuals
staying on the job. This is one way the agency is increasing revenue.
Other organizations are able to do more business as a result of
being more effective in generating employment outcomes. They have
been able to create job development as a profit center.
is working for the chronically unemployed consumer?
You need to take a look at the reThinking unEmployment program on
the "Workshops" pages. This program is having a profound
impact on chronic unemployment for TANF (welfare), VR, Corrections,
and many other groups addressing long-term unemployment.
kind of results have others got from using your materials?
It is hard to predict the results, as we cannot control how the
materials we teach will be used or under what conditions. But as
with all job development training, if the materials you taught were
not working, few people would use you a second time. We have many
long-standing repeat business relationships with our customers.
We would be happy to give you some references if you want to talk
to some of our customers.
happens after the training has finished?
We provide on going support to everyone who has taken our training.
We will do this at a distance, at no charge, by email or fax. If
more support is needed, for a fee we will do on-site coaching, assisting
staff going out to employer visits. We will help the staff prepare,
conduct the visit and then debrief the staff on the visit. We will
also do this at the management level for planning and revising plans
on job development strategy.
do you know your system actually works?
We have used all the skills we teach ourselves. We had the same
experience our customers are having; their consumers are getting
jobs. (See reference list)
makes your training different than any other job placement training?
I don't know that answer, as I don't know all your other training
options. What we feel is strong in our training is that it is practical,
doable and realistic. We also use a systems approach, which means
we know how the whole system of job development should work. We
have taken on projects for placing as few as one person to as many
as 100,000. When you work in big numbers, you need to know how the
whole system works.
kind of training materials do you provide?
A fully detailed training manual supports all our workshops. It
is written to be a resource for each participant for everything
taught in the workshop. We do not use blank page training, relying
on your memory to capture all the information being taught. All
workshops are leader driven with a facilitator who is an expert
in job development.
