GoJob: Offering temporary assignments to temporary workers

March 1, 2016

About the company

GoJob's dream is to offer a job with decent salary and social advantages to all those who wish to work. This, independently from someone's age, gender, race, experience or education. Their platform enables companies to find interim workers fitted to their needs, and removes traditionally discriminating employment processes. KOIS invested in GoJob in 2016, believing in its power to increase employment opportunities and in its experience-based recruitment model.

Banning CVs to enable experience-based employment

Some people make great employees but are unable to produce an impressive CV. This can lessen their potential to society, their quality of life and their self-esteem.

Alarmed by the high rate of unemployment in France, GoJob was founded in 2015 as an online employment platform to connect motivated employees with companies looking for temporary staff. GoJob focuses on experience-based recruitment.

Companies can assess potential employees based on criteria such as punctuality, capacity to work in a team, and competency in completing desired tasks. This gives people a fair chance at finding work regardless of their CVs.

In 2016, KOIS invested in GoJob, convinced that its innovative model provides a promising answer to the employment crisis in developed countries by leveraging the ever-growing trend in employment flexibility and multiple job holding.

Multi-country Social Outcomes Contracting to tackle unemployment in Europe

European Union Member States have been confronted with the challenge of unemployment for several decades with relatively similar characteristics. Seeking innovative approaches to tackle this common issue, KOIS has supported the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH), in testing the preliminary feasibility of a Pan-European Social Outcomes Contracting (SOC) scheme. In this study, we explore the potential benefits and hurdles of a multi country Social Outcomes Contracting in three pilot countries, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
