The SENSENET project’s major sectoral priority is to enhance access to training and qualification for all, regarding the C-VET for managers and human resources from social economy organisations (SEO) and social economy entreprises (SEE). This priority responds to the need of SEOs and SEEs to access effective tools to support their growth and development. In the social economy, in fact, managers and human resources are usually left out from post-qualification training and they lack knowledge on how to be more socially inclusive and responsible in their recruitment processes and management. SENSENET addresses the organisations’ capacity building by combining transversal skills (entrepreneurship, innovation and mentoring) and key technical skills fields’ development (human resources, marketing, negotiation and sales) using ICT, gamification, formal and informal learning strategies. The project proposes to create an open and innovative training, embedded in the digital era: a learning network model.

The SENSENET project aims to create a learning model, driving SEOs’ managers and human resources through an experience-based learning path which will empower them to implement these very powerful tools to foster their employees’ inclusion and employment retention. The project, in conclusion, covers different priorities in an integrated way: to develop effective learning paths, by using digital era tools in order to foster inclusion of vulnerable people by preparing SEOs’ managers and human resources to better get them onboard.

SENSENET stakeholder workshop Copenhagen 20. April 2018

SENSENET is a European initiative whose aim is to raise awareness of social business as a strong engine for social innovation and demonstration of diversity in social business models.

The initiative behind the stakeholder workshop, which was the first initiative of a series, was to find the 5 best practices (social business) in Denmark to promote mutual learning and exchange of good practice among different European countries.

We chose the 5 Social Business based on their success and experience and because they would also share their challenges with developing their Social Business models.
