Since the start of Passwerk in 2008, the focus has been on testing software and performing very diverse quality assignments in the context of Support Processes. From 2017, we have expanded these specific expertises by also recruiting and getting software developers with autism to work. Afterwards, our services were further expanded with Business Intelligence (BI) and Managed Business Process Services (MBPS).
On Site & On Remote
A collaboration can be organized on both an On Site and On Remote basis. All our consultants have the capabilities and ambition to be physically part of the teams at our clients. However, depending on certain circumstances, a remote collaboration or a hybrid way of working may be more appropriate.
Passwerk focuses on the unique and valuable qualities of people with autism. Thanks to a well-thought-out combination of customization and competence management, we as a company have been successful since 2008 in allowing more and more people with autism to take their deserved place in the regular labor market.
Passwerk's ambitions are certainly not purely financial and economic. The motive of our model is to employ as many people with autism as possible within the regular employment circuit. We are therefore doing everything we can to ensure that this number of consultants continues to increase.
Passwerk has now built up cooperative relationships with more than 250 customers. Our portfolio consists of companies and organizations with a very diverse profile. About 50% of our consultants work within the federal, Flemish, Brussels or Walloon government landscape.
Berchem, Brussels, Hasselt, Roeselare
Passwerk now has four offices that are geographically neatly spread over the whole of Flanders. This creates the opportunity for as many employees as possible to work for our clients from one of our offices.
X-ray screening, BI, MBPS, SOC,...
Since 2017, through its sister company TRplus ('Top Resources' plus), Passwerk has furthered its ambition to also create employment opportunities for people with autism outside the ICT sector. One successful example of this is the employment of X-ray screeners with autism at Brussels airport, in collaboration with security firm G4S.
ICT Community for ASD
In 2012, Passwerk set up its own fund within the King Baudouin Foundation: ICT Community for ASD. With a financial contribution from our own annual results, the fund offers the necessary support to various initiatives and projects that contribute to improving the living, housing and working conditions of people with autism.
Building relevant, scientific knowledge on the subject of autism plays a crucial role in the challenge of improving the social and professional relevance of this group of people. With the Passwerk Award, we annually reward the students who have made the greatest contribution to this with their master's thesis at KU Leuven.
Passwerk Lifetime Achievement Award
Each year, with the presentation of the PLAA, Passwerk puts in the spotlight that person who, in his or her own way, has made an undeniable difference to the autism community. In addition to a clear recognition of his or her efforts during a festive evening, the laureate also receives a personal biography.
Passwerk wishes to be in permanent contact with the market, with customers and top managers in order to be able to respond optimally to their needs. Since 2009, an advisory committee has been set up, a body of 19 prominent members that advises us three times a year during a meeting.
At the beginning of 2022, we started our internal Academy. Our goal is to deepen and/or broaden the knowledge of our consultants even further, but also to provide training courses for the new services we are launching.
