How do I get a Job Coach?

  • Your Manager will meet with you to review your performance evaluation.
  • On the back of the performance evaluation you can choose, “I have a disability and I request a job coach,” to help you to work on the performance issues the manager has pointed out.

How is the Employee Referred?

  • The Job Coach receives the evaluation & a job coaching request form from Human Resource.

Making Contact:

  • The job coach will need to meet with you one on one to discuss your needs.
  • The job coach will need medical documentation about your disability in order to develop a plan.
  • The job coach will give various assessments to determine what might help you most.

What is the Next Step?

  • You and Job Coach develop a plan of action.
  • Your manager will be made aware of the plan.

What will the Job Coach do?

  • At first, the Job Coach may come and work with you at your site.
  • The Job Coach will set up prompts to help remind you of your goals.
  • The Job Coach will stay in contact with you and your manager to ensure you are still doing well!
