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.
