I want to work with a client in a training experience.

OJT, the term “on-the-job training” means training by an employer that is provided to a paid trainee while engaged in productive work.  This training will provide knowledge or skills essential to the full and adequate performance of the job. In determining the length of the training, consideration should be given to the skill requirements of the occupation, the academic and occupational skill level of the trainee, the prior work experience of the trainee, and the individualized plan for employment, as appropriate.

Your bottom line is our top priority. Profitability is driven by higher morale and employee engagement, which research has shown to be found in the inclusive culture of very successful companies.

I need assistance accommodating an employee with a disability.                                 

Stay at Work/Return to Work (SAW/RTW) staff are available to assist employers by identifying accommodations that work.  These “accommodation specialists” focus on what an employee can do or is capable of doing with the right accommodation.  By working hand-in-hand with the employer and employee, new or different ways of successfully performing work tasks can be identified either by adjusting how specific tasks are performed or introducing the use of different technologies or equipment to assist in task completion.
