Raleigh’s Top Choice For Employment Testing

Job Ready Services partners with WorkSTEPS to assist employers in identifying at-risk employees at time of hire instead of waiting until they request an accommodation after they are placed, are marginal performers, or report an injury.

Job Ready is a part of a statewide, regional and national WorkSTEPS provider network.

What Our Clients Have to Say About Us

“As a Nurse Case Manager, I find the work conditioning program at Job Ready Services to be the GOLD STANDARD.

“We partnered with Job Ready Services in 2015 to establish the job analysis for all of our major jobs groups and implement Work Steps pre-employment testing at all of our locations.  This program has allowed us to improve a candidate’s chances of success by determining whether or not they can safely perform the essential functions of the position.  Over the past few years, we have realized a reduction in injuries and a significant decrease in our MOD rate.  We believe Job Ready Services has been a key component of our success as we strive to provide a safe and healthy working environment for the Coastal Crew.”
