We help the public and social sector provide high-quality employment promotion interventions.
Our mission is to enhance the effectiveness of the public and social sector in facilitating people’s successful integration into the labour market, especially for disadvantaged groups such as youth, women and refugees.
We have worked on over 30 assignments and in more than 15 countries
Our experience spans Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America
Our clients include leading development partners and NGOs, such as the World Bank, the EC, ILO, and GIZ
Our work is guided by five key principles that we believe are essential to achieve impact.
Holistic and interdisciplinary: Adopting a comprehensive approach to employment promotion, our work cuts across labor market policies, social protection, education, and other policy areas. Moreover, we combine concepts and evidence from economics, psychology, human development, and business management.
Practical, hands-on solutions: We offer pragmatic advice for hands-on solutions feasible in the local context, given capacity and other constraints.
Science of delivery: To promote quality implementation of programs, we pay a lot of attention to building strong delivery systems adapted to the local context that provide a positive end-beneficiary experience (human-centered design).
Data-driven learning: We prioritize strong Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning systems (incl. robust impact assessments) that provide the quantitative and qualitative data needed to inform decision-making and iterative improvements.
The following core values guide our relationships with clients, partners and team members.
