What We Bring to the Table
HDS has access to thousands of diverse candidates who are pre-screened by one of our employment specialists and ready to work. Businesses who seek out HDS are looking for motivated and qualified interns or permanent employees.
State of Wisconsin Wage Reimbursement Programs
Hiring through HDS can significantly cut and sometimes eliminate the cost of hiring and training new employees. Most of our candidates qualify for state programs that allow us to pay initial wages and training costs. We will help educate employers about Wisconsin’s wage reimbursement programs for both internships and permanent employment situations.
We provide individual or group mentoring for new employees. We have a team of mentors who help employees who need on-site or off-site guidance or training when internal resources or mentors are not available.
We have a team of job developers who work one-on-one with individuals to explore, obtain, and retain jobs. Our developers assist with resumes, cover letters, job search skills, interview skills and ultimately help make contact with suitable employers who are interested in providing job shadows, hiring interns, or hiring permanent employees.
Job Coaching and Mentoring
We have a team of job coaches and mentors who will work on-site to help train and assist new employees. Our job coaches help build natural supports and work towards employee independence.
We provide one-on-one computer training for individuals who need to learn the basics of using a computer. Training includes topics such us using Microsoft Office, organizing files, navigating the internet and emailing. Our trainer also works with clients who need help with tutoring and creating a curriculum for a particular computer program.
Employment Readiness Assessments
We do an in-depth and interactive assessment that helps determine if an individual is ready for a particular employment opportunity. We also help identify resources and make recommendations to help that individual plan to enter the workforce.
