Employers

Working For You

Job Path works for you. Job Path has been providing New York City employers with outstanding employees since 1978. Our employment specialists spend time with employers to identify their needs and pinpoint specific tasks that need to get done. Because we know each potential employee’s strengths, abilities, and skills, we can find the best person for the job.

Customized employment is a flexible process which personalizes the relationship between a job candidate and an employer in a way that meets the needs of both. Job Path’s approach towards employment planning is one person at a time, one employer at a time.

Job Path works with each employer to find the right solution for their business.  We help employers address specific work issues that will help to increase productivity in the workplace:

  • Routine daily tasks that reduce staff productivity
  • Work that is backing up
  • New tasks and/or projects that never get done because of lack of time and/or resources
  • High staff turnover
  • Staff being stretched too thin during peak times/hours
  • Issues of safety, compliance and security

Customized employment at work

Bryan at work

The office manager at a large mid-town law firm, gathered department heads to develop a list of tasks that needed attention: updating regulations in the law library, compiling pamphlets for the recruiting office, data entry and petty cash distribution for the fiscal department, transferring hard files to digital files, copying and scanning. With a bundle of tasks now defined, employment specialists identified Bryan, whose meticulous nature, passion for statistics, and desire to work part-time were exactly what was required. For the past five years, Bryan has been a valued employee.

CCE: The Consortium for Customized Employment

The Consortium for Customized Employment (CCE) was launched in 2012 to expand the implementation of the customized employment strategies that have been so successful for both employers and job seekers alike.

The consortium has established a collaborative effort between respected agencies and schools working with people with developmental disabilities. While expanding the pool of candidates we can offer our business partners, the CCE has broadened our partnership base to include larger institutions and industries within New York City.

The Consortium has in place an enthusiastic network of adult service agencies and  schools including: Center for Family Support, Queens Center for Progress, AHRC New York City, Life’s WORC, Herbert G. Birch School and Community Services, Center for Independence of the Disabled - New York, Heartshare Human Services of NY, Goodwill Industries and the Cooke Center Academy.

The CCE has a network of large employers committed to hiring candidates from these agencies; these businesses have significant numbers of jobs and the ability to increase employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. The network of companies that have hired from CCE organizations includes large employers with multiple businesses like Union Square Hospitality Group, which has hired 20 people for its Shake Shack locations as well as its fine restaurants (the Modern, Maialino).  Five other employers have hired more than one person.  For example, the New School and Brooklyn Roasters have hired four and seven individuals, respectively.

While Job Path spearheads the CCE’s employer development effort, we have encouraged participating agencies to share contacts when a business might offer sufficient opportunities or when an agency has a job possibility that can’t be filled with their own candidates. Agencies traditionally guard their job development contacts, but it is our aim that the CCE develop a culture where these contacts can be shared, increasing opportunities for job seekers from all its member agencies.
