Home » Our Why


White Box Enterprises is building a world where anyone who wants a job can get one.

White Box is a leader in the development of large-scale jobs-focused social enterprises. We are on a mission to deepen and grow the sector so that there are social enterprise job opportunities in every town and every person that is struggling to find a job has the option of a pathway to employment through social enterprise.

Unemployment affects our community disproportionately and now, more than ever, Australia needs innovative employment pathways for overlooked and underserved jobseekers.

Well-run work-integrated social enterprises have been shown to produce higher and better employment outcomes than mainstream employment services for disadvantaged Australians. They have been proven to increase economic productivity, inclusion, capital and wellbeing – for both individuals and communities (see the Westpac Foundation report, Social enterprise: A people-centred approach to employment services and our own commissioned research, undertaken by Taylor Fry comparing social enterprises and existing Disability Employment Support Services). 

Throughout our work, we are proud to partner with the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) at Swinburne University to evaluate our effectiveness and progress in achieving employment outcomes for overlooked and underserved job seekers.
