On Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st of February 2019, the Kickoff meeting of the Work4Integration – Europe project took place in Milan, with the participation of all Italian and European partners: Randstad Italia, Sodalitas Foundation, punto.sud Foundation, Albero della Vita Foundation, RiseSmart Employability (Belgium) and AntennConsulting (Sweden).

The meeting was an opportunity for mutual knowledge and exchange of experiences on working methods aimed at facilitating the social and labor inclusion of third-country nationals. The partners introduced themselves presenting case studies of their daily work practice.

The exchange highlighted points in common and differences between the operational models, which will be material for the elaboration of a shared action model at European level. The aim was to facilitate a reflection on the points of success / failure and the planning of future interventions at the end of the project.

In these weeks, all the countries involved are starting implementing activities aimed at the work placement of foreign citizens and at supporting companies that decide to valorise on the workplace the skills of people coming from other cultures.
