Inclusive organisation


The Centre of Expertise for Inclusive Organisations (Dutch: Centrum Inclusieve ArbeidsOrganisatie, abbreviated CIAO) is a Maastricht University based institute that was founded in close collaboration with the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency, UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut WerknemersVerzekeringen). CIAO offers a platform of knowledge to all parties working professionally towards promoting sustainable participation in the labour market, both for those working and those searching for jobs, and especially those who are not able to participate in the current labour market independently. To further this, CIAO does scientific and practice oriented research. We also develop various practical tools.

Sharing knowledge and expertise

Because sustainable participation in the labour market and workplace inclusion pays off, CIAO aims to increase the number of inclusive organisations. For that reason, we want to share our knowledge and expertise with professionals and organisations alike, so that they benefit most optimally from the diversity in talent in the labour market. We've gathered some useful articles in our knowledge base.




The knowledge we share, is particularly aimed at
organisations and professionals
