“Incluyeme is an excellent platform. From the first minute the staff is committed and gives help!” Calixto Huespe, an Incluyeme user
Incluyeme.com, a corporation launched in 2013, is Latin America's first job portal for people with disabilities and is present in eight countries of the region. In 2020 the company had a database of more than 200,000 registered users with various disabilities looking for a job. Among Incluyeme clients are such corporations as Accenture, IBM, and Microsoft. Incluyeme also provides recruiter training and awareness workshops to companies that are seeking to employ persons with disabilities.
In Latin America the unemployment rate of persons with disabilities is very high, but they are unable to use mainstream job portals.
Solution, Innovation and Impact
Headquartered in Buenos Aires, Incluyeme.com operates in seven other countries of Latin America: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. Jobseekers can sign up on the portal, upload their resume, and start applying for available jobs as per their interests. Incluyeme also provides various courses to job seekers through a platform called Capacitacion Inclusiva. Incluyeme offers a job listing platform to companies that are interested in hiring people with disabilities, and provides them with workshops to improve their work culture. Over 1,000 job opportunities are posted every year from more than 500 companies, including Accenture, IBM, Microsoft, Siemens, and Unilever. The company itself also hires people with disabilities and works with NGOs to create new solutions and get feedback on content, such as its educational courses. From 2013 to 2020 more than 1,900 people with disabilities have found employment through the job portal.
Funding, Outlook and Transferability
Incluyeme charges membership fees and provides consulting services. The company has been cash-flow positive since 2016 and is reinvesting all proceeds to increase reach and impact. Incluyeme.com was chosen as one of the top ten social start-ups in Latin America by Ashoka, and its founder was selected as one of 2020's Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum. By 2025, Incluyeme aims to employ more than 500 people with disabilities per month while working with 2,000 companies.
