The story of Diego and Mind at Work


It all starts with a suitable job

Together with his Jobcoach Wilco, Mind at Work, Diego went looking for a job that would suit him. Not much later they found a perfect job at Action, a bulk retailer, in Hilversum. They asked Diego to do a job interview the next week. The floor manager and Diego clicked instantly and they were both enthusiastic about Diego starting. That same day the floor manager offered him a job as a sales assistant and of course Diego was happy to hear he got the job he liked so much!

The only problem was….

The standard travel expenses compensation wasn’t enough for Diego to cover all the costs, because he lives outside of the area. These expenses were a bit too much for him. But fortunately his new manager and his Jobcoach Wilco didn’t go down without a fight!

Via via he heard about Participation Certificate

A colleague told Wilco about Participation Certificate when he explained the problem. Wilco instantly picked up the phone and called to clarify why it is important to help Diego with his uncovered travel expenses. “To overcome this obstacle, Diego can now start his job without being worried about money.”

A well suited job!

With the certificate of Accezz International they funded a personal public transport card. “ This card makes the difference between just sitting at home and an paying job. Everything went well and smoothly and that is needed sometimes. Because of Participation Certificate’s quick and creative thinking we solved the travel expenses problem in just a week.”  

Hopefully for a long time

“Diego is doing very well.” He is having fun and his floor manager is very pleased about his work. “He does what he says, being assertive and is always welcome to feedback.” told Wilco.
