September 12, 2017

Digital changes the deal in terms of outsourcing and asks many questions. While the criteria for choosing external partners are gaining to take into account CSR and commitment factors, some go further and propose to help businesses work with people from struggling populations. "The Impact sourcing" in question.

If the work is increasingly digital and companies incorporate their social responsibility, then solutions naturally see the light of day. In a gallery published by The Tribune, the co-founder of the Isahit platform, Isabelle Mashola, presents the raison d'être of her activity: " The digital divide is a major problem for people in Africa. The challenge is to give birth to a model that will enable the development of skills, the connection of people with each other and improve the living conditions of people in emerging countries, thanks to digital technology.
