Mission 


UtilDeco's mission is to provide customized products and services for companies and organizations that choose to take an active role in transforming communities, who understand that socially responsible procurement can help achieve performance goals while making a positive impact.


Values


Care for the well-being of employees, the environment and the community are central to everything we do.
Honesty and integrity are paramount in our approach to partnerships with suppliers and customers.
We pay close attention to detail in the delivery of our products and services and ensure that what we provide is valuable and useful to customers.


Vision


To turn disability into ability. 


Products and services for B2B customers


Since 2008, we've worked with over 500 clients across the country and across industries. Clients who purchase from UtilDeco are companies with more than 50 employees and public authorities in Romania, who can purchase, on a partnership basis, products and services made by people with disabilities employed in UtilDeco's authorised sheltered unit, benefiting from the settlement of costs up to 50% of the minimum gross basic salary for unemployed disabled people.



  • Production of textile work equipment;

  • Digital printing (advertising material, letterpress, volumetric letters, catalogues, brochures, calendars);

  • Physical and electronic archiving and document storage;

  • S.S.M. and S.U. services;

  • Coffee beans, freshly roasted, in the Opya roastery - the latest product available in the UtilDeco portfolio from October 2021. 


As an authorised sheltered unit, the collaboration with UtilDeco allows companies and organisations with more than 50 employees to purchase these products and services at no cost - by deducting them from the payments due for unemployed people with disabilities under Law 448/2006.


On top of that, the additional authorisation as a social enterprise of insertion means that a minimum of 90% of the profit must be reinvested in the social mission. At UtilDeco, we reinvest 100% of our profits in three social projects: Youth Club - Day Centre for young people with disabilities and from vulnerable categories, JobDirect - Recruitment and placement services for people with disabilities on the labour market and UtilDeco - Job creation for people with disabilities.


Social beneficiaries


Our social beneficiaries are people with disabilities, young people leaving the child protection system and young people from vulnerable groups. 


At 2020 level, this is the scale of our social impact:



  • 25 jobs protected (18 disabled and 7 from other vulnerable groups);

  • 30 people with disabilities benefited from career counselling and guidance services, of which 5 were employed;

  • 80 children are currently benefiting from the services and activities of the Day Centre for young people with disabilities and from vulnerable backgrounds;

WISE.travel aims to transform the way we travel. Under the USP/slogan "Do good traveling!", WISE.travel puts in a single online platform everything you need to travel at the best price and at the same time support those around you.


We created WISE.travel to connect travellers, companies and social businesses in a more effective way with the travel industry. Our vision involves a different way of travelling - a responsible way - that gives tourists the opportunity to take part in different activities provided by NGOs worldwide.


WISE.travel - more than a simple travel agency


The traveller chooses an NGO to which WISE donates half of the gross profit. A company can use WISE as a business travel partner and in this way support their favourite NGO. The gesture is endorsed by the social impact certificate we grant in line with the Global Goals and the CSR reporting directive 95. 


The WISE platform includes 180,000 hotels, 22,000 cars, 18,000 activities and special offers. There are 30 NGO partners and another 1,800 listed as geographical suggestions for travellers. Since inception, €28,000 has been donated/invested in social programmes. 


In addition, when a tourist chooses to travel to Athens for example, they are automatically suggested activities and social businesses in the area, giving them the opportunity to purchase souvenirs from a workshop where people with disabilities work or to have a meal in a social restaurant. We do not charge a promotion fee.


BENEFITS FOR THE TRAVELLER



  1. Quality service at a click away and offline support for customised offers or unforeseen situations;

  2. A complete package of tourist services - hotels, car rentals, activities and the best flight options for the period and destination selected for accommodation;

  3. Plus value for money. Profits are reinvested to support programmes run by NGOs registered on the platform;

  4. A new way of travelling - you support the community you visit: - you eat at a social restaurant, you buy souvenirs made by people with disabilities, you participate in volunteering activities in another country, etc.


BENEFITS FOR COMPANIES 



  1. A fully automated platform for business travel and employee motivation;

  2. Savings for partner companies - automation of the procurement process and reduction of resources allocated to this activity. Competitive market prices;

  3. Transparent real-time social impact reporting. The partnership with WISE.travel is included in the company's CSR policy.


Details 


BENEFITS FOR NGOs 



  1. An additional source of self-funding without having the organization's employees, friends or donors allocate additional money for it. Just change their travel provider, from booking.com or other competing site to WISE.travel;

  2. The promotion of their own products and services to travellers free of charge and generate additional revenue;
