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.
It is possible
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. By opening the door and removing thresholds.
Open Hiring® leaves no room for the usual prejudices and doubts. As an employer you put the possibilities of people first and you connect yourself to the local community of which you are part. The door is open.
The platform economy offers opportunities for people to take ownership of their ambition in a different way. A partnership leads to working together on work. It is true that this new way of working sometimes runs up against the limits of current regulations and technology, but it is worth investigating.
In practice, social entrepreneurs take responsibility for the different approach. An approach of no or few restrictive rules when hiring people, good guidance and the prevention of drop-out (care if necessary). People quickly get a job that suits them. Is it better over time to grow with another employer? Then you can. If it’s better to take a step back, that’s possible too. People keep their jobs, temporary contracts disappear.
By creating equal opportunities, we achieve the ultimate goal: more people permanently in work, at lower social costs throughout the Netherlands.
H3. sessions theme equal opportunities
Equal Opportunities – How?
round 1 | 11.45 – 12.45
In this session we explore the opportunities of the different forms for creating equal opportunities for all.
A job without an interview?
round 2 | 13.30 – 15.00
We list options, together with the people who may know. If you still think in terms of false security and false self-employment, then this workshop was the last time.
Participation without law
round 2 | 13.30 – 15.00
The Participation Act creates unnecessarily high barriers for people with disabilities who are looking for work. In a large city like Amsterdam, less than 0.5% currently works in a social job, while 5% is at home on social assistance. This can be done better and more effectively.
