Supported  Employment

At Rauch Employment Services, we believe that there is no better investment than in another human being.

Employment Services

Rauch, Inc.'s Employment Services programming provides placement services to clients with disabilities and other life challenges. Clients obtain and maintain employment through career explorations, job readiness, soft skills training, job development, follow along services, and individual job coaching. These services are designed in accordance with the individual's support needs and preferences. Rauch staff assists each client in discovering and understanding his or her own vocational interests, values, temperaments, work-related behaviors, aptitudes, skills, physical capabilities, learning style, and training needs.

Rauch services emphasize the human elements of developing the workforce, seeing the whole person for his or her strengths, talents, abilities and life situation, and then matching them to the needs and requirements of businesses. Each client served is paired with an Employment Consultant who can assist in addressing employment-related concerns and/or to help the employee further his or her skills training. If desired, the Consultant may remain on the jobsite until both the employer and employee are satisfied that job tasks can be independently performed. The advantage of this arrangement is that it provides an immediate, on site, one-to-one intervention resource and helps improve employee retention rates.

Rauch has a very successful placement record, finding and maintaining employment for clients at companies like Hitachi Cable, Kroger, Indiana University Southeast, Floyd Memorial Health Center, Walmart, and more
