Equal opportunities – how?

We exclude a lot of people. This happens unconsciously and consciously, often with the best intentions, for example to manage risks. It can also be different. By looking at recruitment & selection and organizing work differently, opportunities are created for people who would otherwise not have their turn.

With the cooperation of:

  • Jos van Delft of Startfoundation about the further development of the open hiring method in the Netherlands
  • Martijn Arets is a professional outsider and expert in the field of platform economy

Talent development – competencies for the future

Digitization offers great opportunities for companies and their employees. Are they actually equipped for that and hooked up to it? Europe is committed to the future of the social economy by investing in digital skills. Competencies for the future: is the social economy ready?
