Mission & Vision

GTB is the specialised service provision and counselling service for people with work disabilities or health problems. GTB promotes job integration into the labor market, empowering persons with special needs and supporting companies to employ persons with special needs.

We guide people to a suitable job and support them to retain their jobs. First of all, we are looking for paid work. If that is not feasible, we are looking forward to a suitable alternative. Also during the employment, both the employee and the employer can get advice and support.

We help people in discovering their skills and talents and how to use or develop them further.

GTB is a network-organisation that works together with job coaches, trainers, employers and certainly the client and their personal network.
