Egalite Diversity & Inclusion
|Name of Organisation||Egalite Inclusion & Diversity|
|Type of organisation||A startup company, A social business|
|Funding model||Annual budget: USD 250,000. In Brazil there is a law that requires companies over 100 employees to include 2% to 5% of people with disabilities in its workforce. Companies that don´t comply with the law are required to pay a fine. In our business model all services provided for people with disabilities are free. Egalite´s revenue comes from the companies who wants to hire PWD. We charge recruiting fees based on the salary of the job opportunity. Our revenue model is sustainable and our company has been growing, making it possible to innovate and further develop our technology.|
We have helped to employ over 7,000 PwD in 19 different states. In our program, the average annual income of a person with disability is 76% higher than the minimum wage. If we consider all the benefits included (health insurance, bonus, etc.) the average year income goes to 120% higher than the minimum wage.
In the past 3 years, our revenue and impact grew 60%. We have a database of 60,000 candidates with disabilities and helped over 7,000 PwD to find job opportunities.
Egalite is unique for the methodology and technology developed to address the employment of PwD . In Brazil we are the only recruitment platform fully adapted for PwD and that has an evaluation of the behavioural profile. A further advantage over other recruitment firms is the comparison of the job opportunity with the candidate, carried out by the algorithm.
This product is design for working age people with disabilities. Our technology and methodology is adapted for all different kinds of disability.
