Edscha honoured for commitment to refugee relief

Federal President Joachim Gauck Visits “Wir zusammen” Members

Remscheid, September 2, 2016 – Federal President Joachim Gauck paid a visit to the “Wir zusammen” (We Together) members in Essen on September 2nd, 2016 and appreciated their exemplary commitment to the integration of refugees. Counted among the approximately 300 guests of the circle of the “Wir zusammen” members that took part in the Federal President’s visit were also Edscha’s CEO Torsten Greiner, personnel manager Peter Laerberg and press relations officer Christina Clemens.

In his welcoming speech Gauck emphasized how important the great personal commitment on the part of the companies and their staff members was for the people that have been taking refuge in Germany at present. At the same time the Federal President called on other companies to follow suit and have their proper share in a successful integration that way.

Since February of 2016 “Wir zusammen” has combined the initiatives of over 100 companies of the German economy. Edscha is one of them. For instance, Edscha supports refugees in learning the German language. According to the motto “Edscha helps” staff members

donated for the purchase of 200 visual dictionaries that were handed out to refugees. Moreover, eight refugees have been received at the Edscha site almost daily since May of 2016. Here they are given free German lessons four days a week by a language teacher that has been engaged especially for that purpose, and they learn with great commitment. Besides, two Syrian refugees have started their professional training at the Bavarian Edscha site in Hengersberg in September to become industrial electronics technicians and industrial mechanics respectively. Both training positions were added to the regular ones.

Integration is not a question for Edscha but a task.  Edscha would like to make a positive contribution on that score and does not only see the need to open up new vistas to people who had to flee war and prosecution, but also the prospects that immigration offers our country.
