Inclusion and excellence, two cornerstones of our group

Inclusion and excellence, two cornerstones of our group

In a few months our Israel-based company Aquatron will celebrate its third anniversary working with one of its top welders, Galina Michaelevich. Galina joined Aquatron because of her extensive experience in welding.

Besides being an outstanding professional and colleague, Galina is deaf. According to Tahl Sela, Human Resources Manager at Aquatron, “her motivation and the ease with which she adapted to the company’s dynamics made us realise that, when it comes to hiring, we can both work with the best professionals while providing an opportunity for people who face greater difficulties in entering the labour market”.

Aquatron has since hired four hearing impaired employees for its production line. Some team members took the initiative to learn sign language, motivated by the idea of finding a new way to communicate with their teammates. An experience that has undoubtedly proved extremely rewarding for everyone involved.

Moreover, a year ago and through collaboration with “Hameshakem”, an organisation which aims to provide employment for the disabled, the Aquatron production department hired five employees with special needs. Integrating these new members into the team has once again been fruitful and successful for both sides.
