INIOS – Inclusion in Upper Swabia is an initiative that meets this demand for inclusion. Members of a company are given the opportunity to work in a workshop for people with disabilities. In return, the member of the workshop accompanies the exchange candidate to his/her own company. KNOLL has been participating in the scheme since this spring and, since September, has allowed all trainees in the company to take part. The cooperation takes place with the "Oberschwäbischen Werkstätten (OWB)" in Mengen and Bad Saulgau. Managing Director Matthias Knoll is convinced by the INIOS concept: "Social competence is highly significant in our company. This form of exchange offers excellent opportunities to gain practical experience in this field." KNOLL instructor Peter Widmann has already made a positive intermediate assessment: "We learn the importance of the readiness to help others, openness and acceptance of fellow human beings who are different."
