About us Holistic Integration through IWE: How Valeriana Approaches Integration through Work, Education, and Community
Integration through Work:
At Valeriana, we consider work to be a central factor in integration. We create opportunities and provide employment that is open to individuals regardless of their background, gender, or personal circumstances. Through employment at Valeriana, our employees have the opportunity to utilize their skills and talents, pursue their career goals, and actively contribute to the success of the company. We foster an inclusive work environment characterized by respect, tolerance, and cultural exchange.
Education is another key pillar of integration. At Valeriana, we support the education of our employees through targeted training programs and development opportunities. We encourage them to continuously expand their knowledge and skills to advance professionally and personal growth. Furthermore, we also strive to create educational opportunities for disadvantaged groups and improve access to education. We believe that education is a key to social participation and success in life.
Creating a strong community is another goal we pursue at Valeriana. We actively engage in the local community and promote intercultural exchange and collaboration. Through partnerships with local organizations, associations, and schools, we create spaces for encounters and value cultural diversity. We also regularly organize community activities and events where our employees, their families, and the community can come together. Through these community initiatives, we foster a sense of belonging and create a supportive environment for integration.
