Employer Information

To help employers to maximize their business, we strive to find creative solutions and address each business’s unique challenges and needs. We offer practical assistance to an employer who employs or is considering employing a person with a disability providing quality, well-trained employees and lasting employment relationships. In fact, job retention rates are as high as 87% for those with disabilities.

Businesses who hire people of differing abilities report lower staff turnover rates, decreased training and recruitment costs, higher customer satisfaction, improved morale and also better work team performance.

How It Works

After assessing your needs and goals, our staff will work with you and anyone you’d like to include to complete a comprehensive job analysis and select an appropriate candidate based upon each individual’s skills and interests. Next, an applicant is referred to you for an interview, after which the final hiring decision is yours.

If hired, our staff will work onsite providing the employee with job orientation, followed by personalized, ongoing training and assistance to help promote satisfactory performance and ongoing satisfaction for both the employee and employer. As our partner, you can expect to:

  • Receive a free consultation to develop specialized roles.
  • On-site disability and diversity awareness training.

Other Perks

Many businesses qualify for tax credits upon hiring. Our staff can also offer job modification assistance to employers, diversity training and awareness for co-workers, and job retention services to the employee and business on a long-term or as-needed basis.

An employment specialist may also analyze tasks, restructure how some tasks are completed or teach tasks differently to best fit the needs of each employer and/or employee.

Additional Note

Holly Ridge Center Community: Here is an update to our programs and how we are providing services to our community. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay tuned.

Infant Toddler Program:

Holly Ridge Center’s highest priority is to keep families and staff safe.  Kitsap County is currently in Phase -2 Safe Start.  Based on Early Support for Infant and Toddlers (ESIT) and the Department of Child Youth and Family Services guidelines, Holly Ridge Center is in Early Support for Infant and Toddlers Stage 1 – limited in person services for children with very specific needs that cannot be accommodated through virtual services such as zoom, this is about 2-4% of all the children we provide services for. Early Support for Infant and Toddlers highly recommends the use of virtual services to protect children, families, and staff.  Holly Ridge Center is currently working on a plan for expanded in-person services, however these visits are not permitted until the county is in Phase 3 as determined by Governor Inslee.  Read more information here.

Adult Employment Services: Adult Employment Services program is supporting their individuals based on their current employment status, goals and service needs.  For those needing support as they perform their essential personnel functions in public, we are practicing social distancing & stay healthy guidelines and for those self-isolating we are reaching out in various virtual forms.
