ENSIE represents the interests of national and regional networks of ‘Work Integration Social Enterprises’ (WISEs) striving for more inclusive and integrated forms of employment at European level. Today, ENSIE gathers 27 national, regional and local networks in 20 European countries. Since 2011, the network is considered by the European Commission as a key actor in fighting poverty and social exclusion.

In 2015, ENSIE launched, together with its members, the “Impact-WISEs” study, a social impact measurement tool that aims to demonstrate the positive social and economic impact of WISEs. In the current context of the COVID-19 crisis, new variables were exceptionally added to the study to report on the impact of this crisis on WISEs activities.

During the session, the participants had the opportunity to learn more on the importance of measuring the social impact for WISEs as well as on the existing challenges faced during this process. ENSIE presented its recent data from 2019 as well as the data related to the COVID-19 impact on WISEs. Three representatives of national networks from Spain, Croatia and France shared information about the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on WISEs activities in their respective countries and the tools/means used to remediate to the crisis and finally, they presented their expectations and recommendations for the future. 

This session provided participants with a global overview on WISEs social and economic impact on the society as well as on their resilience in times of crisis.
