Germany's Major Firms Have Hired Fewer Than 100 of Its 1m Refugees | Fortune

'Most large German companies, especially those in manufacturing, prefer to hire through structured apprenticeship programmes, in which they train young people for up to four years for highly skilled and sometimes company-specific jobs. '

'Germany’s blue-chip companies will have to explain to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday why they have managed to hire fewer than 100 refugees after around a million arrived in the country last year. '

'Many will have been through months of pre-training especially designed for migrants by large companies like engineering group Siemens, Mercedes maker Daimler or automotive technology firm Continental. '

'Many large companies see the main benefits of the migrant influx as an opportunity to introduce more diversity into their workforce and to bring their staff into personal contact with refugees. '

'Others among Germany’s top listed companies, mainly in the financial or airline sectors, say it is practically impossible for them to take on refugees at all. '
