Post Placement Support (PPS) is the service provided to job seekers and employers in the first 26 weeks of employment. It is designed to maximise the chances of sustainable employment for the job seeker and employer satisfaction with their new employee.
PPS is a proven strategy for achieving sustainable placements, maximising outcome fees, and building performance ratings in the jobactive and Disability Employment Services environments. PPS can improve job seeker retention in employment when there is a planned approach to maintaining regular contact with both job seekers and employers. It enables early intervention if problems arise and encourages the building of quality relationships that increases opportunities for repeat business.
Discuss with your Job Seeker
PPS is something that needs to be discussed with every job seeker when they commence into your services. Discussing this early, allows the job seeker to future pace themselves into employment and understand the support available to them.
Before speaking with the job seeker think of the benefits that they would appreciate. Every person is different in what they value so it’s best to do this every time you market to a new job seeker. Also, try to determine the best way to market this information to them. Would they like to hear it? Read it? See it?
Rapport is what connects one person to another and allows any form of relationship to develop. Rapport can be built through things like similar interests, values, beliefs, goals, even just through simple body language. If you can find just one thing that you can relate to a person about, the battle of getting to know them is half won.
