History

Employment Solutions started as an arts and craft centre to the Phyllis Robertson Home, in Pretoria. It later developed into an organisation that offers skills training and creates vocational options for people across demographics living with various disabilities. In April 1999 Employment Solutions was registered as a Non Profit Company under the name selected by the participants of the company.

The challenge in this organisation is to manage projects that at the same time become a community resource for persons with disabilities to introduce them to employment simulation and options.

What makes our approach unique is that we offer valuable services focused on job related capacity building - therefore not only giving dignity and purpose to a marginalised part of our society, but also offering services that make business sense in the socio-economic environment.

Persons with disabilities have special challenges in obtaining employment. Workplaces are not disability-friendly, people are not sensitive and coping with day-to-day activities can be very challenging. Employment Solutions therefore strives to promote accommodating and disability-friendly work environments.
