The SupportersDesk is a Social Enterprise developed by SMRT.bio. It is an innovative 'Personal Development Program' that supports unemployed people to get work experience and to find work to make a decent income. SMRT.bio is looking for regional partners interested to implement the SupportersDesk in their own language.
The people that work in the SupportersDesk are called: 'Supporters'. During the Program, the Supporters are trained and coached to add new employers to the platform. When employers publish vacancies, Supporters are the first to know. During the Program, all Supporters are coached to find work or education. In the SupportersDesk everyone finds his purpose!
The SupportersDesk has a specific focus on Micro SME's employing less than 20 employees. This group of employers often does not have an HR infrastructure; they do not offer Appraisals to their staff, and they do not have Life-Long Learning in place. This is affecting 40-50% of the total labour force. The SupportersDesk also offers this group to join for FREE.
The company culture stimulates Supporters to find work or study opportunities outside of the SupportersDesk within 16-24 weeks. As a result, new Supporters are being welcomed to go through the same process. Every workplace in the SupportersDesk results in 2-3 people that we help to be 'back-in-business' to make a decent income. Year-after-year.
