Tip of the Month:
Typing Speed

Encourage your consumers to get their typing speed up, as all of our jobs require computer work and a substantial amount of typing. Our minimum requirement is 20 words per minute.

If your consumer is unable to meet that requirement, they will not be placed in a job with us.

A Word From the COO:

 

It has been an exciting year at NTI. We have developed two new advanced call center classes for our customers. These classes provide customer-specific training to better prepare our candidates for their positions. We are also in the process of developing a report card for our candidates. This report card will document the progress your clients have made in our instructor-led courses, self-paced study and in developing those oh-so critical soft-skills. The report card will be available for candidates and counselors starting in Q4.

 

We recently completed a beta test of our Virtual Contact Center Services. NTI can now provide a complete virtual call center for its customers. Similar to the IRS call center we run, NTI will provide the people, process and technology. Our beta test with our customer was very successful. These new services will allow NTI to provide a broader set of employment services: promotional opportunities, increased training and coaching. We are currently in negotiations with two new customers and hope to roll out call centers for them in Q3/Q4.

 

I hope everyone has a great summer!

NTI's New Divisions

NTI would like to announce the creation of two new divisions: LandAjob and Staffing Connection. Both of these divisions are Employment Networks in the Ticket-to-Work program. 

 

LandAjob provides a searchable jobs database containing tens of thousands of openings with Fortune 500 companies. The database is updated daily with new positions. 

 

Staffing Connection will partner with corporations who are interested in employing individuals with disabilities and would like to take advantage of Staffing Connection's focused outreach program. The focused outreach program will be able to identify candidates in specific geographic areas to fill positions. 

 

These two new divisions will allow NTI to expand its ability to provide employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
