Marquard & Bahls and the non-profit initiative JOBLINGE Kompass teamed up since 2016 to help young refugees enter working life. Their cooperation centers on the volunteering of our employees and the valuable exchange of experience between them and the Joblinge participants. Last year, two language training courses lasting several weeks were held at our corporate headquarters, in which nearly 30 employees actively participated. Other employees were involved in the JOBLINGE mentor program and spent six months accompanying a JOBLING on their path into working life. To provide financial support to the initiative as well, Oiltanking covered the costs of job-related tutoring & learning workshops for JOBLINGE participants in the amount of 15,500 euros.
