EDGE in Industry Knowledge

With more than 25 years experience in Western Australian industry, 5,000 jobs secured for people with disability, involvement with hundreds of employers and a register of several hundred motivated job seekers, EDGE Employment Solutions is the solution to your recruitment and training needs. EDGE can identify suitable jobs, match the right employees to the job and your company, and deliver customised on-the-job training at your workplace.

EDGE in Productive Workforce

The combination of a motivated workforce, good job match, on-the-job training and ongoing back-up has delivered impressive outcomes for workers with disability registered with EDGE, who demonstrate productivity levels that are the equal of those of the general workforce. At the same time they display attendance, safety and turnover records that far exceed those of the general workforce.

EDGE in Cost

The cost of recruiting staff can run into thousands of dollars when advertising, interviewing, assessing, orienting and training are taken into account - and even then there is no guarantee of getting the right person for the job. EDGE provides all of these services, and more, at no cost to the employer or employee.

EDGE in Training and Support

EDGE will provide personalised on-the-job training to your employee with a disability until you are satisfied that the employee is meeting your expectations. Our 30-strong team of on-the-job training and support staff hold a range of professional or trade qualifications in addition to a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment or equivalent.

EDGE can also provide workplace training courses to your staff at its own training facility at no cost to you. EDGE's "Mentoring Co-Workers with Disability" training course, which has been attended by more than 2,000 co-workers across the public and private sectors, provides your staff with the necessary skills and confidence to help your new employee to learn the job.

EDGE in Service and Back-up

EDGE will provide ongoing support and back-up for as long as the employee remains with your company. EDGE will remain on-call to the employer and employee if an unforeseen problem arises on or off the job.

EDGE in Quality
