Nova Siria awarded by the UNHCR for refugees integration

Nova Siria has been awarded by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) with the “WELCOME – Working for refugee integration” recognition for the year 2019. The coveted award is due to the major commitment shown by the company in promoting specific actions for employment of refugees. Last year, Nova Siria, in fact, hired two refugees from Pakistan and Bangladesh. After an initial apprenticeship period, one of the two resources was confirmed as employee on a permanent contract. As well as the contributions due to the high level of skill involved in their roles, the presence within the company of the two refugees has been and still continues to stand as major added value at a human and intercultural level, recognised and validated by all company colleagues and executives. Nova Siria again intends to be a candidate for the 2020 edition of the “Welcome – Working for refugee integration” award, thereby confirming its wish to extend its openness to different cultures, favouring the development of a multi-ethnic work team, fertile ground for constructive dialogue and exchange.
