In-House Job Coach Programme
Unlike job coaches who are typically from social service agencies, in-house job coaches are identified from within organisations that hire persons with disabilities and bring with them strong industry knowledge. They support the beneficiaries' integration
at work, and help them with interpersonal skills and career planning.
We encourage employers to hire their own in-house job coaches or identify them within their organisation, so as to build their in-house capability to support the integration of employees with disabilities at the workplace.
Discover more about the integral role that in-house job coaches play in strengthening their organisation's disability-inclusive hiring efforts for growth and sustainability.
Ms Cha San San, a Service Manager in Shangri-La Singapore's Human Resources (Training) department, is among the many who have taken part in our pilot programme to train in-house job coaches. Ms Cha attended trainings such as the Advanced Certificate in
Supported Employment, to equip herself as an in-house job coach to better support her colleagues with disabilities.
