July 11, 2016 – As part of its commitment to social responsibility and to making a contribution to the integration of refugees in Germany, Recaro Aircraft Seating has made internships at its Schwaebisch Hall plant available to refugees. Furthermore, Recaro has made a “five-figure donation” to the German language institute for its continued work.
According to Recaro, several of the refugees participating in sponsored language classes have been selected to participate in a four-week internship program in different departments of the company. Among the chosen individuals, three have been placed in the global marketing, customer center and quality departments at the company’s headquarters.
“Right from the beginning, we were convinced that we would have inspiring and positive experiences with the foreign interns, making it a win-win situation for everyone involved,” stated Dr Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “The interns were able to quickly integrate themselves into our processes and constructively assist in various departments with their extensive specialized knowledge. Thanks to the excellent language classes, all interns came equipped with outstanding German language skills. We can imagine an even more extensive integration program in the future.”
