Supported Employment - Meeting the Employer
The employer is important, if not essential, to the supported employment process and these podcasts give you a look at the best way to cultivate and maintain relationships with employers from small employers to multinationals. The second of 2 podcasts looks deeper into the relationship the agency builds with potential employers. The meetings are very important in setting the tone and starting off with a clear mission for all. Getting this part of the process correct is essential.

The podcasts focusses on how a service should engage with an employer when trying to support an individual to access work.
