Business leaders save time and money while expanding their customer base

As a workforce development partner, VR can help your business achieve its competitive advantage by developing qualified job candidates who are trained in a wide variety of skills and have the good work habits that you value.

Employers from every job sector, including federal contractors, indicate that hiring VR consumers helps them reduce training costs and increase job retention rates, while improving workforce diversity.

Through individualized assessment, we get to know our consumers so that we can assist you to find the right person for the right job.


Find talent

VR provides a pipeline of talented individuals to meet your workforce needs. Our Business Development Specialists (BDS) introduce you to the benefits of hiring these individuals.

Job matching starts when you notify us of an open position. We assess your requirements and identify matches using individualized career assessment tools such as WorkKeys®.

Finally, we pre-screen qualified candidates, saving you time and money.

Train talent

Through job preparedness instruction in our training centers, our consumers learn the fundamental skills needed to work for you.

Job readiness training helps you assess a person’s potential with no obligation.

Our consumers participate in customized training where they become competent in all aspects of the job, including knowledge, skills and company culture.

After hire, we continue to provide assistance to both you and the consumer for at least 90 days.

This is one of the best programs I’ve ever seen. VR is changing people’s lives and helping businesses thrive in the community.

Keep talent

Post employment services, which may include assistive and additional education, are available to former consumers you hire who may require services to maintain, regain or advance in employment.

Job Retention Services help you retain valuable employees who need help due to a disability that might be jeopardizing their employment.

For you, the benefits include better retention, less absenteeism and tardiness, an improved safety record, better quality and quantity of work, less disciplinary action and less turnover.

These confidential services help your employees through counseling and guidance, medical or psychological evaluation and/or treatment, training in personal and social skills, job-site modifications, or accommodations and referrals to other service providers.
