Employment Solutions is a protective workshop that provides disability-friendly environment. Persons with various disabilities participate according to their unique abilities and needs. Their capabilities are matched with the requirements of the different projects. The basis of teamwork, where each person contributes uniquely, forms the basis of this engagement model.
Projects are managed to accommodate the specific abilities of the persons with disabilities that engage in these projects. Some are designed to decrease production pressure for the individuals whilst others provide the opportunity for individual growth and skills gain. Movement amongst different projects and units allows for varied experience.
The environment is built to enrich and foster acceptance as persons with dignity and self-realisation. The opportunity to be constructively busy is the most empowering tool in individual growth.
