Our work world was never more manifold and multivaried than it is today. For most people in our society, work and profession represent a central area of our life, and have long since not simply served for providing sustenance.
Our professions allow us to engage in and implement ideas, and receive recognition for our performance. Success in a profession means much more than financial security, it also creates the feeling of being needed and having something meaningful to accomplish.
The Fliedner workshops are an enterprise that provides work for the handicapped.
Like every other enterprise in the manufacturing sector, the Fliedner workshops work according to market economy principles of supply and demand: innovative products, high quality standards, reliability and lean marketing make us a competitive enterprise which is outwardly indistinguishable from other companies with respect to performance capability. This is not least illustrated by the certification of the operation by DIN EN ISO 9001:2000.
The Fliedner workshops pursue an extensive and modern pedagogical work concept with the individual in the centre of attention with his particular social, motor and intellectual capabilities. For this reason, the work is integrated into a comprehensive concept in which, apart from various individual assistance components of help and attention, the work itself is a essential part of the assistance. The workers have colleagues at their side with a double professional qualification; in addition to the craftsman profession they have learned, they have also had additional special pedagogical training.
