RFSC has been developing employer partnerships for over 35 years and works with employers to ensure that our clients meet their needs. Our strategies also reflect the realities of the labor market in the region and are adjusted as needed. Employers require employees to have some basic skills and “soft skills.” Almost every job requires some level of computer skills, and teamwork and communication are key soft skills employers require. Clients with very low English skills face challenges to meet even these minimum requirements, so RFSC works with clients to ensure that they have enough basic skills to meet employer requirements Our staff have identified flexible employers who are willing to hire our clients and continue to work on identifying appropriate placements. Additionally, our employer partners know that our staff will be there for them after placement and for as long as needed. They will help with translation, barrier reduction such as client care and transportation, and conflict resolution. RFSC uses proven strategies to engage and work with employers to support ongoing client success in the workplace.
