We are proud of the quality of the researchers that work with Inclusive Works: a mix of masters and PhD graduates with diverse backgrounds and both qualitative and quantitative expertise, primarily in the social sciences. Our research work to date includes:

  • Research into the motives for and decision-making processes involved in the decision to discriminate:

On behalf of the city of Utrecht, Inclusive Works conducted research on the selection procedures of temporary employment agencies in Utrecht. The goal of the research was to identify whether the selection procedures currently used by temporary employment agencies can make a positive contribution to the employment of minorities. Additionally, we tried to determine whether these selection procedures resulted in (indirect or unconscious) discrimination against minorities. To this end, interviews were held with the staff of thirteen agencies in the city of Utrecht: agencyowners, managers and recruitment consultants.
During the interviews, we asked our respondents to describe comprehensively how they recruit candidates, how they assess them and how they choose who to place with a company. The answers to these questions provided insights into the extent to which the choice of candidate reflected the job requirements.

The report (in Dutch) contains an English summary: Rapport Eerlijk Zeggen definitief met cover.pdf
