Please describe how your project has been successful and how that success is measured
El Programa que brinda Diagonal (Programa de Reinserción Laboral) lleva realizados 3 años consecutivos de medición de resultados.
Tenemos una tasa de reinserción laboral superior al 54% (2009: 61%, 2010: 50%, 2011: 58%). Más de la mitad de las personas logra la reinserción en menos de 6 meses. Esta medición contempla a casi mil personas que realizaron el Programa. La encuesta se llevó a cabo a través de minuciosas entrevistas telefónicas realizadas a los ex participantes del Programa.
Más allá del éxito cuantitativo, también se está generando en nuestra sociedad una toma de conciencia respecto de las ventajas y beneficios que tienen las personas mayores de 45 años, volviendo a revalorizar valores como la sabiduría, experiencia, responsabilidad, perseverancia, humildad que tienen las personas adultas.
The Diagonal Program (Labor Reinsertion Program) has been measuring results for over three consecutive years..
We have a reincorporation rate of more than 54% (2009: 61%, 2010: 50%, 2011: 58%). More than half of the persons manage to be reincorporated in less than 6 months. This measuring contemplates almost one thousand persons who made the Program. The survey took place through detailed telephone interviews which were made to former Program Participants.
Apart from the quantitative success, our society is generating awareness in respect of the advantages and benefits of those persons who are older than 45 by re-valuing certain assets of the adult people, such as wisdom, experience, responsibility, perseverance, humbleness.
We are also positioning ourselves as referents at regional level through the site www.todaviaservimos.com, where we share all our experience with people from other countries.
Each time there are more companies, mainly small and medium-sized firms that take into account persons older than 45 when they have to hire personnel.
How will your project evolve over the next three years?
Taking into account that, on one hand there are more and more unemployed persons and on the other that lifetime has been extended, we expect to have more service demand. We also expect that more and more companies stop discrimininating people on account of their age. At the same time, we are intending to start replicating and extrapolating our know-how in all the Argentine provinces (today we only are in the City of Buenos Aires), which will allow that more people may be benefited from our experience.
