"When we hired our new employee from EmployAbility Galway our main concern was the equipment needed to assist the individual do their job. However, they sourced the proper assistive technology through the Workplace Equipment Adaptation Grant, at no cost to us, or our new staff member. The equipment was suitable and enabled the person to fully complete all of their work tasks. The Job Coach also had a Safe Pass which was great as we had no Health and Safety worries about them coming to provide on site support. I would highly recommend EmployAbility Galway to other employers".
"We have been employing a person from Employability for the last 9 months. It was not something we had actively considered or indeed were aware of until we were approached by Employability. Our experience with the placedindividual, the job coach and Employability has been very positive and any issues which arise (although very few) are dealt with efficiently and effectively. All round it has been a very positive experience and I would not hesitate to recommend the service to other companies.

At PC World Galway we were approached in 2008 by EmployAbility Service Galway and since then have employed 2 people with disabilities from the service. We have always found the service to be professional, and the job coach support is excellent.

Our aim is to create an enjoyable, rewarding shopping experience for all of our valued customers.
I have been working with the Galway employ ability services since November 2008 and I have to say I find the whole experience very rewarding. Their attention to detail in placing the right person in the right company is impeccable and the support following the placement is second to none. Nothing does you better than to see an employee flourish in the proper environment, and to see that same employee eager to work with you. It was also rewarding to see the chance in my other employees when we got involved in the process. Many of my Staff are in the 19 to 22 year old bracket and would have had very little experience of working with people with disabilities and I have to say it has made them more caring and tolerant over their peers. A true life experience.... I would have no reservations in recommending any business, no matter what type of business it is, to get involved with Employ Ability Service Galway and do your part!!

They have provided employees who have often fitted in well with the rest of the team, and if any problems do arise they have been dealt with appropriately, quickly and always professionally. We would have no hesitation in recommending Employ Ability Galway to other employers".
We were approached in 2004 by Employ Ability to get involved in the scheme they were running to integrate people who had a disability, back to work. We were fully briefed as to what the service was trying to deliver, the supports that we would have had available and the potential personal benefits the individual would hope to get from the Scheme.
The individual who joined us in our Pilot program has not only grown personally, but has made a huge impact on Creganna-Tactx and its employees. We have had an extremely positive experience throughout this program and would have no hesitation in recommending any company to get involved in this initiative which forms part of our social responsibility.
