Elenore Parker is the president of Rewarding Work, a website which gives older people and individuals with disabilities and their families the choice of hiring staff directly and allows them control of the process of hiring personal assistants.
The site also provides private agencies a resource to assist in recruitment of direct support professionals and other staff. At present, Rewarding Work has a current database of thousands of names of job candidates who have completed an application either online or by telephone.
Rewarding Work is now offering an automatic job posting feature, which allows families to post job descriptions immediately. Job applicant responses go directly to families, who remain anonymous. Your first job posting on the new automatic system is free.
