The discussions continue to evolve. Your input has been inspiring, admirable, enlightening. Big themes have come to light in our effort to explore how to discover, uncover, develop and implement ways to make transformative work available to all members of society -- "transformative work" being work that is both sustainable and sustaining, providing purpose and meaning first to the worker, and ultimately to society.
Figuring out how to customize employment is key in finding a flexible process designed to personalize the employment relationship between a worker and an employer in a way that meets the needs of both. It is based on an individualized match between the strengths, conditions, and interests of a job candidate and the identified needs of an employer - whether it be private, public or quasi-public. Customized employment utilizes an individualized approach to employment planning and job development — one person at a time . . . one employer at a time.
