Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Employing people on the autism spectrum and hiring them out as consultants
Passwerk is a Belgian social enterprise established in 2008 that trains and hires people on the autism spectrum before leasing them to companies, and provides them with long-term job coaching. Passwerk “consultants” are specialized in IT services, such as software testing, business intelligence, software development, and quality assurance. In 2020 the company employed over 120 consultants on the autism spectrum all over Belgium, and it has assigned them to more than 200 clients since its start.
“Joeri complements the team very well. His eye for detail and his constant accuracy are very valuable.”
