High-ranking visitor from Berlin. Federal Minister, Andrea Nahles, visited ENERGETIX Bingen!

Mem­ber of par­lia­ment arrives at ENERGETIX on 9 Octo­ber 2015, on time and in good spir­its. After being wel­comed by Roland Förster, the company’s Sole Share­hold­er and CEO, and a short tour of its depart­ments, the politi­cian – who was always accom­pa­nied by sev­er­al local politi­cians, press rep­re­sen­ta­tives and a tele­vi­sion crew – took the time for an inten­sive exchange of ideas.

Andrea Nahles would not be a good politi­cian if she didn’t shift atten­tion to the top­ic that is cur­rent­ly par­tic­u­lar­ly close to her heart: refugees – and more specif­i­cal­ly – their rapid incor­po­ra­tion into the labour mar­ket for faster inte­gra­tion.

Lived inte­gra­tion
How can gov­ern­ment help Ger­man com­pa­nies to – rapid­ly – improve the refugees‘ sit­u­a­tion on the labour mar­ket! These and oth­er inter­est­ing ques­tions were not avoid­ed and the fed­er­al min­is­ter left with the promise that ENERGETIX would, if the polit­i­cal frame­work con­di­tions per­mit­ted, give young refugees the oppor­tu­ni­ty to start their work­ing life – and thus inte­gra­tion – with prac­ti­cal train­ing at ENERGETIX.


Besides wel­com­ing the high pro­por­tion of women, par­tic­u­lar­ly in exec­u­tive roles, the Fed­er­al Min­is­ter for Labour and Social Affairs was espe­cial­ly hap­py to see the large num­ber of – high­ly qual­i­fied – employ­ees from immi­grant back­grounds demon­strat­ing that inte­gra­tion is a mat­ter of course at ENERGETIX Bin­gen!

It was then time for her next appoint­ment in Mainz where she was to dis­cuss the top­ic of a “good work­ing life” with cit­i­zens (“Gut leben, gut arbeit­en” (“Liv­ing Well, Work­ing Well”)). She was prob­a­bly able to take sev­er­al pos­i­tive ideas from Bin­gen with her and con­tribute them to the dis­cus­sion!
