Social Enterprise

A social enterprise (maatwerkbedrijf) — this is what we call a sheltered workshop (beschutte werkplaats) nowadays — stands with both feet firmly anchored in society. It doesn’t just exist to make a profit, it also gives work to people who aren’t able to find a place in the mainstream labour market.

Social Enterprise

Social enterprises are evolving at light speed. Don’t miss the train to the future!

Do you work for a social enterprise? Then you know how challenging it is to keep the wheels turning. You need to be at home in a range of different markets because a social enterprise offers a range of different services: maintenance and upkeep of parks and greenspace, logistics work, printing work and much more...

The many changes within your sector aren’t making it any easier. New legislations such as the M-decree in education, changing subsidy regulations and new customer demands. 

You’re doing your best to keep a grip on your organisation. And for this you’re using a range of tools and measurement instruments. But how do you bring all that information together in one single, useful work tool?
