SIV (SOCIAL IMPACT VOUCHERS)

ABOUT

Social Impact Vouchers (SIV) are employment vouchers that have a social impact on the labour market. The innovative voucher system brings together employee seeking companies and job seeking disadvantaged people in a very simple way. The free and uncomplicated employment vouchers enable companies and applicants to get to know each other and test each other over a period of three months with the aim of permanent employment. 

For companies, SIV is a new additional opportunity to test and hire exceptional and motivated employees. For applicants with limitations, SIV offers an authentic platform to introduce themselves to companies with their strengths and weaknesses and to prove themselves in a three-month test phase.

The innovative international project is financed by a Social Impact Fund, which is funded by private industry, crowdfunding and foundations.

Non-profit organisations, municipal partners and competence centres in eight countries in Central Europe are testing the innovative project simultaneously and jointly. In their cooperation, they benefit from each other‘s country-specific innovations and special features.

Each placement promotes the integration of disadvantaged people and provides companies with highly motivated employees.

FOR COMPANIES

Test and find motivated employees for your company with us on a new innovative platform. With us you will find exceptional applicants, some with limitations and handicaps. These are people who often fall too quickly through the grid in the usual application process, even though they are highly motivated. Expect authentic and honest applications in which the applicants describe their strengths and limitations. All applicants will be coached and accompanied by us and will apply without the pressure of state job brokers or jobagencies. If you find applicants in our portal who suit you, you can easily get to know them free of charge in a three-month trial phase with the help of a simple employment voucher. During this period, applicants will receive full payment on a minimum wage basis.

If you decide to hire the applicant, the goal is achieved. If you are successful, you are invited to pay the costs for the employment voucher you use into our Social Impact Fund. This enables other companies and applicants to use the voucher model. 

Benefit and become part of an innovative social project.

FOR DONORS - SOCIAL IMPACT FUND

With the help of private capital, disadvantaged people are placed on a new, innovative path into the labour market, companies are provided with motivated employees and at the same time the structures of community-based actors are strengthened. 

The central element is a new intelligent voucher system (SIV). This enables job-seekers to prove their worth on a minimum wage basis and companies to test and recruit motivated employees on a new additional platform. 

Without the pressure of state job brokers or jobagencies, applicants are placed with open-minded companies in a motivating and authentic placement atmosphere. 

The voucher system is financed by private funds from foundations and sponsors who want to strengthen the project, especially in the start-up phase. Enterprises, which profit from a successful placement, are invited to repay the costs of a coupon into the fund, ensuring a lasting flow of funds. 

The costs for a voucher, which enables a three-month test and probation phase on a minimum wage basis, amount to xxxxx,xx EUR. For the project phase 2019 – 2021 the funds are needed to finance 800 vouchers. 

Become part of an innovative social integration project and help to connect job-seeking disadvantaged people with companies that are looking for motivated employees.
