employU Ribbon Cutting
employU is a local nonprofit organization offering employment services to people with disabilities. The organization is structured as a one-stop-shop offering adult employment services, youth programs, employability trainings, paid work experience, and a variety of assessments for persons with disabilities whom are motivated to work. Individuals who complete employU programs emerge work-ready and eager to start their new careers.
The benefits of these services for local businesses are endless. Partnering with employU enhances an employer’s recruitment process by tapping into a labor market that comes with its own team of professionals backing it every step of the way. employU tailors opportunities to each business partner matching them with applicants whose skills and abilities are compatible to their employment needs. Once an applicant becomes an official member of the business partner’s team, employU provides ongoing support for three to five months, or longer, to ensure a high rate of job retention (85%).
Palm Beach County was added to the employU service area last year, and now the organization has opened a local office to expand the services provided to this community. To celebrate the grand opening of their 20th office, now located at 400 North Congress Ave., Suite 170, West Palm Beach, FL 33401, employU is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony September 17, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Area residents and business leaders are welcome to drop in and enjoy complimentary refreshments while they learn more about the opportunities employU offers to clients and business partners.
