Community Employment offers you three unique employment models that can help you get the job done.
Individual Placement - An individual is matched to an existing or special job in your company and becomes your employee. The types of jobs our clients can perform are as broad as the jobs you have to offer.
Enclaves - An enclave is a dedicated site within your business where a small group of workers performs specific tasks or produces specific goods. A Community Employment supervisor remains on site to provide guidance at no cost to your business. The workers may either be under your employ, or may be hired on a contractual basis.
Mobile Crews - Mobile crews are groups of workers that travel between worksites or branches of your business performing specific tasks, such as building maintenance or grounds keeping. Community Employment provides transportation, and in most cases, equipment. Services are provided on a contractual basis.
Businesses throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York employ hundreds of our clients each year.
