Since its emergence in 2001, a body of work has emerged describing customized employment. Supporters of the approach agree that customized employment is based on the match between the unique strengths, needs, and interests of the job candidate and the identified needs of the employer. Another important component of customized employment is Discovery or the identification of the individual's needs, strengths, and interests. However, there is limited information on what practitioners in the field identify as the essential features of customized employment and how effectively customized employment is being implemented.

This webcast will explore the essential elements of customized employment as identified by rehabilitation professionals in the United States. Using an email listserv of employment specialists and other vocational rehabilitation professionals, VCU conducted a national survey asking the respondents if they felt a specific element was essential to customized employment implementation. They were then asked how well their agencies were implementing these features. Implications of the findings for practice and staff training will be discussed..
