MAKING & MEASURING IMPACT
Since our start in 2016, we have made over 1200 successful matches. Quite a few.
But what does it actually mean? What is the actual impact of our matches?
The independent organisation Impact Institute investigated the impact of our matches. The outcome?
Our matches have a direct, positive impact on newcomers, companies, government and our society. Not only in the financial field, but also in personal wellbeing and social cohesion.
From the research
"The integration of newcomers into society is a relevant social challenge. This analysis shows that the innovative approach of NewBees creates great social value by helping newcomers to be part of Dutch society by actively matching them with traineeships."
“The total value of the analyzed effects of the activities of NewBees in Zaanstad is estimated at more than 1 million euros.”
