Our wage and benefit packages for Direct Support Professionals are competitive and help ensure we are able to keep the caring, qualified workers who support the individuals we serve and their families.
Throughout all levels of the organization, REM Wisconsin takes a proactive approach to staff development and we’ve become recognized as an employer of choice in human services in Wisconsin.
