In this situation, finding a job means an improvement in many Phone number list fundamental aspects of people's lives , but difficult to measure: improvement in material well-being, improvement in emotional well-being, increased interaction with other people or personal and professional development”, they analyze. . People with disabilities have greater difficulties in finding work and are, on average, at greater risk of social exclusion than people without disabilities IS_IMPACT focuses precisely on this area, offering a methodological framework with which to quantitatively address Phone number list these questions through a scheme of parameterized items . Thus, the methodology allows companies to put numbers for these purposes, going one step further than traditional measurements. Not only that. In addition to measuring intangibles, it also makes it possible to economically assess the social impact. If measuring the social impact is complex, it is even more complex to value it economically.
Although there are widely used methodologies such as cost-benefit methodologies or SROI , which can be useful in many cases, they do not answer some questions that we consider relevant. Sometimes there are social initiatives that generate a relevant contribution but have no cost or, if they do, it does not reflect the Phone number list social contribution generated. For example, in the case of employment programs such as INSERTA, traditional methodologies tend to approximate the social value through the market price of the resources used, which does not Phone number list capture the "value" of accessing a job for people. and that, to a great extent, has an intangible nature. The approach of the IS_IMPACT methodology in this area is quite innovative. Instead of approximating the social value through the market price of the resources invested, it does so through the “ value that society grants to the impact achieved ”, using public spending as an approximation of the social value.
IS_IMPACT allows estimating what the Public Administrations would have had to spend to achieve an improvement in social inclusion equivalent to that achieved with employment To the Phone number list extent that the distribution of public resources reflects the preferences of the citizens, it is considered that the aid that the Public Administrations grant in matters of disability reflect the value that society grants to the improvement of the social inclusion of this group. With this approximation, IS_IMPACT allows estimating the public resources saved by the different Public Administrations thanks to a social program (in this case, the INSERTA Program) or, alternatively, what the Public Administrations Phone number list would have had to spend to achieve an improvement in social inclusion equivalent to that achieved through employment . How to identify, measure and assess the impact of social inclusion programs? A methodology was needed to measure and assess the return of social programs and job placement for people at risk of social exclusion, and we have done it.
