Employees with disabilities are generally reliable, enthusiastic and highly motivated. They value the opportunity to work and be contributing members of society. In addition, hiring individuals with disabilities creates a more diverse workplace and demonstrates a company’s commitment to community values. It’s a win-win situation and it makes great business sense.

Heres how it works.

Competitive and Supported Employment

The company directly hires employees. Bancroft employment specialists help train your new employees and facilitate on-the-job support, gradually reducing their presence as the employees can complete the job more independently.

Transitional Supported Employment

The company hires a group of employees indirectly through a service agreement with Bancroft. We provide a supervisor to support the group at the employer’s work site. This arrangement serves as a training model, enabling individuals with disabilities to learn the skills needed to function productively and independently in a work setting. Once this training phase is complete, Bancroft can offer the employer skilled and experiences workers for direct employment.

Contract Employment

The company hires a group of employees indirectly through a contract with Bancroft. Companies typically contract for a specific project such as packaging a product. The employees work at a Bancroft site with supervision from Bancroft employment specialists.

Internships and Volunteer Positions

The company provides unpaid internship and volunteer positions to individuals with disabilities. Bancroft employment specialists provide support every step of the way to help train the individual. This allows the intern to gain valuable work experience and prepares him/her to be successful in a workplace setting.
