AOF-East has specialized in creating a balance between demands from the companies, the competences of actual and coming employees, and the resources necessary for creating optimal solutions.
Throughout many years, the AOF-East has assisted Municipalities in re-qualifying and re-placing citizens, who have lost contact to the labor market.
The assignments are primarily solved by use of individual contact-relations between employees from AOF-East and the Citizen.
Experiences from these contact relations are offered to companies as a concept that enables the companies to minimize costs and optimize earnings by:
- Keeping good employees and their competences in the companies
- Qualifying actual and potential employees
- Helping companies to recruit qualified work force
- Helping companies and municipalities to reduce absenteeism
AOF-East has a staff of around 20 employees and has divisions in several cities in Zealand.
The staff represents a wide range of educations and experiences:
social workers, teachers, psychologists, systemic coaches, experts from the health sector and experts from companies.
