What is Customized Employment? | Meaning & Definition | Akrivia HCM

A customized employment process is one in which the relationship between an employer and an employee is discussed and negotiated so that both parties are happy with the result. The changes agreed upon may or may not be codified in the employment contract. It may be conducted before the employee starts or be part of an ongoing improvement process.  

Job reassignment may consist of redistributing the responsibilities of existing employees to new ones to suit their strengths better. Job sharing may also be possible, particularly when an employee seeks a more excellent balance between work and personal life. The organization helps people with intellectual disabilities find work.
