Help Meet Your Workforce Needs

We Can Help Meet Your Workforce Needs

Productive Alternatives has been specializing in creating pathways to employment for adults with disabilities since 1959. We enable people to discover their gifts, earn supportive wages, and live life to their full ability.

Our goal is to match an employee or employees to help fill your workforce needs. Whether you have full time, part time, temporary or permanent employment needs, we are here to help. We provide on-site coaching to develop and implement all phases of employment along with continued support as needed.

From a practical business perspective, working with Productive Alternatives makes sense, but our business partners tell us it’s about more than that. They share with us the intangible benefits they get-the loyal, hardworking employees who become valuable members of a team, whose tenacity and determination inspires other employees.

They show up with a green bump cap and a green shirt as a part of our team, and always with a smile on their faces. We are very happy to have them as a part of our crew
