Plant-a-Talent is a non-profit company that prepares refugees and immigrants for their job search and supports them throughout the entire hiring process. Since April 2016 – the inception of the operation in Munich, the company has helped over 150 candidates find a job. This young growing company achieves job placement success by closely supervising and coordinating the preparation process with each individual candidate. They personally meet with all of candidates and advise them on their present employment options and how they can improve their qualifications. Plant-a-Talent helps all types of candidates – with a range of talents, education and work experience to find a job so they can grow their skill set and integrate into German society.
The Plant-a-Talent mission:
- To create a world that welcomes refugees and immigrants
- To contribute to a harmonious society that promotes integration into the community and workforce
- To encourage cultural diversity and exchange for an enriched society
Since February 2018, Plant-a-Talent is certified as a private job agency. This certificate allows them to receive fees – via the redemption of job placement vouchers – from Federal Employment Agency (BAA) and state run job centers. Plant-a-Talent also generates income with its corporate mentoring programs.
At present, Plant-a-Talent is funded by donations and sponsorships since the income generated by job placements, corporate mentoring programs and HR consulting work is not yet high enough to cover all operating expenses.
