Employager a big success!

On the initiative of the City of Eindhoven, the Red Bluejay Foundation organized a design challenge around people with a distance to the labour market. The results: 44 submissions, 5 finalists, 1 winner and 1 audience award winner! 44 methods, apps, tools, instruments to get an inclusive labour market. €20.000 to win, of which €12.000 for the winner!
Sandra Beijnes (Projectmanager AutThere at NVA) about Employager: "The intense and constructive meetings with the professionals on the Red Bluejay team have lead to the jury awarding AutThere2Work as runner up in the challenge. The Red Bluejay Foundation has greatly helped the project AutThere2Work, by adding more content and shaping the original idea.
