Daimler is helping refugees integrate into society and into the job market. Many of its employees are also doing voluntary work. Staff at the company have been involved in a number of fundraising activities to show their support and to help those in difficult circumstances.
Wilfried Porth, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler, Human Resources and Director of Labor Relations, IT & Mercedes-Benz Vans: "Immigration is an opportunity for Germany. As a company, we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously and we are doing what we can to help with the social and professional integration of refugees. By introducing the 'bridge internship', we are trying to give refugees a straightforward and uncomplicated route into the job market."
