Abilities Network takes pride in the important work of our dedicated and motivated staff. Their loyalty to our mission results in our positive workplace. Their commitment to provide high-quality support services to individuals and the greater community is the key to our success.
In a recent staff survey, our employees were asked, “Why do you stay at Abilities Network?” The most popular responses included:
- “I love my job and working with the individuals we serve.”
- “I love the company culture.”
Prior to working with individuals in services, our staff undergo intense preparation and training. Staff are required to complete Disability Specific Trainings (DSTs) and are certified in First Aid and CPR through the American Heart Association. Additionally, our staff are specifically trained in creating customized jobs for people with disabilities. Our expert staff are knowledgeable in job development and possess the necessary skills to successfully support individuals in achieving their identified goals.
We are pleased to state that our employee turnover rates are significantly lower than the industry average and thus equates to better continuity of services. However, it is inevitable that Abilities Network employees occasionally move on to other endeavors. We purposely provide support to individuals with a team model approach so even if one member of the support team leaves, we still have multiple employees on staff who understand the goals, needs and preferences of the individuals in our services. Working with multiple team members also adds more ideas, creativity and more opportunity for growth to the service process.
