Launched the #JobSwitch platform with her colleagues at the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce
Location: Luxembourg, Luxembourg
“We help entrepreneurs whose operations have been fundamentally disrupted by the COVID-19 health crisis”
While some companies had to close down due to COVID-19, others were overwhelmed by demand. To balance these needs, Claudine and her colleagues at the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce launched the #JobSwitch platform. “We had a dedicated hotline for businesses. We answered their concerns, provided them with information in real time, and provided a tool that enabled staff from a workplace that had closed to take on employment with another business that was short of staff,” Claudine explains. Running until the end of April, the platform was a great success. Some 1 400 candidates applied, and over 500 people found new jobs. Besides #JobSwitch, the Chamber of Commerce also launched a support programme for entrepreneurs, along with a bank guarantee for businesses in financial difficulty.
