Healthy business conduct
Realising this goal isn’t possible without a financially healthy business conduct. A social enterprise is social in its business conduct and financially self-sufficient. In fact, we think that commercial success and social enterprising are vital for corporate social responsibility.
Specialisterren searches for innovative solutions and wants to inspire others. Creating profit for everyone is our priority: for the employee a job and more happiness, for the client an exemplary service and for the society, social impact and savings on social expenses.
Social worth \ Financial worth
Charities | Social enterprises | Regular companies
Pure donations from subsidies | Donations/subsidies and income from the market | >75% income from the market | Profit completely reinvested | Profit handed out at a limit | MVO+ at the core of the company | Purely financially driven
Barely any impact Impact prioritized Finances prioritized
Specialisterren proves that social enterprising is a valid alternate option. In contrast to regular enterprises – who also usually exhibit some corporate social responsibility – Specialisterren is content with less economical profit. The available financial profit is utilized for a bigger social gain. So in short, impact first!
