ENP Social Enterprise Research Study
In the Summer of 2013, Eco-Ethonomics Inc. was contracted by Enterprising Non-profits to research social enterprises across Canada that train and employ individuals that experience multiple barriers to employment. The research study involved working collaboratively with three other research teams to conduct a total of 60 interviews and 20 case studies. The research was funded by the Government of British Columbia and focused on how social enterprises of this kind utilize HR policies and practices to support people who have trouble connecting with the economy. The results from the research will be used to inform the development of a curriculum, practical tools/resources, and potentially make policy recommendations in the future.
