We are excited to welcome Jack to the Get That Good Life! conference. Jack will be presenting about employment and will share his employment journey.
Getting a Good Start in a Good Job
An Example of Open Employment Using Some Customised Employment Principles
Presented by Jack Kruger, Jan Kruger, Julia Shumaker, and Milton Tyree
Much has been learned through the years about open employment. There is much evidence that shows what works and what doesn’t work. When the well-established guiding principles of customised employment are applied, desirable results are likely to follow.
In this presentation, we will look at how a local family applied these principles in the workplace.
Jack Kruger, a recent school-leaver, will provide an overview of his work roles over the years. He’ll explain how these have led to him securing employment at Government House in Canberra.
Then Jan Kruger, Jack’s mum, and Julia Shumaker, Jack’s job mentor, will describe the process of developing Jack’s Government House job. They will explain
- how they worked with the employer to define Jack’s responsibilities
- the nature of Jack’s relationships with his co-workers, including their instructional roles
- adjustments that the employer made to help Jack learn and master his role, and
- lessons learned along the way.
Finally, Milton Tyree will connect Jack’s story with the customised employment principles that he described in his pre-conference webinar. There will be time for comments and questions.
