Workforce Development Success

Community Partners Working Together for Workforce Success


When I first contacted Emory Valley Center (EVC), I only had a vague idea about hiring a person with a disability, but felt it could be a great long-term opportunity for the right person.  Fortunately, their process was incredibly simple, efficient, and risk-free to us.

From the very beginning, Joseph was a great fit.  He was excited to work and genuinely wanted to do a good job.  With the help of his EVC job coach, Joseph learned the box assembly process within a few weeks.  He also learned how to operate a forklift and wrap pallets – tasks we did not expect him to do!  In addition, even after we hired Joseph, Emory Valley Center continued to support him with on-site job coaching and training.  This has greatly helped both Joseph and our staff.

I would encourage local businesses to consider Emory Valley Center’s workforce development program.  In many ways, their services are better than professional staffing agencies.  Moreover, their staff stays with the individual throughout the process and, even after hiring is complete, making sure everyone is happy.
