Refugee aid

Integrating refugees into the job market is a basic prerequisite for their successful overall integration, and helps them actively participate in the society in which they now live. Since 2015 Deutsche Post DHL Group has been actively involved in refugee aid, contributing to various aid and integration projects throughout Germany.

The Group has been actively lending its support to aid and integration projects across Germany since autumn 2015. Our activities focus on projects and programs that foster language acquisition, support refugees in their personal and professional development, and that enable their first exposure to the work environment. With a diverse range of activities including interview and job application training, mentoring programs, internship opportunities and language courses, we provide refugees with professional skills and the prospect of employment – whether with Deutsche Post DHL Group or elsewhere.

In order to ensure the quality of our activities, we work together with experienced partners , including the German Federal Employment Agency, Joblinge, Teach First Deutschland and Stiftung Lesen to name but a few. The initiative is testament to the hard work and commitment of our employees, large numbers of whom volunteer their time throughout Germany as mentors, trainers, and reading and language buddies.

We recently joined the #WithRefugees Campaign of the UNHCR.


The 2019 Sustainability Report shows that every day, our employees bring the world together, united by one common purpose: “Connecting people, improving lives.”
