The Helpfulness of
Employment Service Systems Research and Training
The Employment Service Systems Research and Training Center (ESSRTC) develops and enhances partnerships to improve the quality of employment services, opportunities, and outcomes for people with disabilities. Several research projects are designed to meet this goal and these projects represent partnerships across public agencies, between not-for-profit and public agencies, and between rehabilitation agencies and businesses.
One of the ESSRTC projects is the Workplace Socialization Model (WPS). This project focuses on job enhancement and retention. The WPS aims to extend the job tenure of employees with a disability and other positive work outcomes including the employee’s job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and level of work culture competency, as well as the employer’s satisfaction with the employee’s job performance. See the "Helpfulness of the WPS Project" box below for a success story of this approach.
