Customized Employment (CE) is a process that builds upon the foundation of Supported Employment. CE involves a functional, real-time assessment of an individual’s skills and talents, based on the assumption that everyone is “work ready;" the development of best-match scenarios between work environment, supports, their interests, and work tasks; and, in the case of wage employment, a negotiation between the potential employee (and often a representative) and the employer. CE is a non-comparative approach to employment; therefore in most cases typical application and interview processes are afterthoughts, indulged only to meet any existing hiring protocols. Crucial to the CE process are vocational team members that understand the proper steps of Discovering Personal Genius (DPG) (assessment), interest-based negotiation, job analysis, systematic instruction, job carving, and job creation. CE represents an economic development approach to employment that eschews the vestiges of historic charity models (e.g. “Hire the Handicapped”), and labor market studies, while recognizing that wages are the residue of profits created through an individual’s contribution to a company.
