The CEO of on regional enterprise gave an interesting insight on how he succeeded in overcoming initital challenges such as language problems, legal issues and fear. He underlined that one needs some additional time and patience at the beginning of the process but that it can be very rewarding to give a refugee the chance to work in an enterprise.
REST (Refugee Employment Support and Training) is a European project aiming at enhancing competences in enterprises and organisations to employ and to successfully interact with refugees. REST intends to support employers, human resources managers, in-company trainers and supervisors when it comes to the employment, integration and in-house training of refugees.
