Blue Mountain Industries (BMI) is a non-profit organization that serves dozens of innovative job seekers, all of whom are skilled, qualified and ready for work. BMI aligns job seekers’ strengths with businesses’ needs, creating unique employment opportunities that increase productivity, decrease turnover rates, boost team morale, and save businesses time and money.
In addition to introducing job seekers to employers, BMI may assist with training procedures. As the worker masters their work, the job coach will fade out but stay in contact with the employer and worker. BMI job coaches view themselves as free laborers who unhesitatingly complete any task that will benefit the business while also supporting the worker.
