So, why EmployCare?

Tina initiated and established EmployCare from her experience working in the disability sector.

EmployCare was established because of people struggling with questions like, is my present job tapping into my true potential? Do I have the right attitude and behaviour to advance in my career? How do I prepare for this next step? What are my transferable skills, strengths and limitations? How do I develop a career plan that will move me towards my goal? How do I move beyond people seeing my disability and see my ability, skills, and potential?

Tina felt, and conversations with clients confirmed a need to assist others in preparing for a change in their employment or prepare to enter the workforce, especially people challenged by their disabilities and mental health.
