What if you:
– always wanted to have more people with disabilities working in the open labour market
– always had the ambition to have more employers opening their doors for people with disabilities
– always were trying to reach this, via campaigns, social media, meetings, subsidies etc.
– and, every time, thinking, how can we do even better
Then the i-SME Action Guidelines might be of serious help
The i-SME action guidelines support you developing interventions for employers, in:
doing the right thing
at the right moment
via the right means
with the right message
at the right place
We know forcing does not work on the long term. Facilitating does. Governments can initiate positive incentives. That helps to increase the chances. These incentives work best when there is an intrinsic motivation of employers to hire a person with a disability. And it is this intrinsic motivation that we need to stimulate, as much as possible. This is what we are aiming at with these i-SME Action Guidelines; to increase the intrinsic motivation of SMEs to be open for applicants with a disability and to hire persons with a disability.
These i-SME Action Guidelines are completely based on relevant theories of changing behaviour. These theories gave us an insight in all ‘ingredients’ important and relevant to include, when organising events to increase the motivation of SMEs to be open for applicants with a disability. This list of ingredients, and a standardised way of working using twelve steps, form the basis for the i-SME Action Guidelines.
These action guidelines take you through a number of steps to make the right decisions when developing an event aimed at SMEs to open their doors for people with disabilities as possible future employees.
