ORI’s Job Development Team consistently researches local job opportunities and provides support and job placement expertise that allows each candidate to successfully compete for local job openings.
ORI provides Employment Assessment services, which are designed to gauge an individual’s strengths in a work setting as well as identify potential barriers that demonstrate a need for extra support. The goal of Work Assessments and Community-based Evaluations is long-term successful employment experiences for both the employee and employer.
ORI Work Crews are groups of five to twelve client workers, employed by ORI and supported by an EmployAbilities supervisor, which are contracted by local businesses or individuals to perform a variety of work duties—janitorial, site cleanup, packaging and labeling and general maintenance. Currently, there are more than ten work crews in Missoula, some working at City Hall and the Federal Building, as well as the Business Improvement District crew downtown. The Missoula Fire Technology Center crew just celebrated their 25-year working partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.
