FKI IS ADOPTION COMPANY OF THE YEAR 2021 IN THE RELATIONS NETWORK
Since the autumn of 2016, we have had a collaboration with a class from Verninge School, who have visited us twice a year. Each visit has had a theme, e.g. coding and programming, employee profiles, measurement and weighing, job search etc.
The collaboration is arranged by the Relations Network (Relationsnetværket), which is responsible for finding adoption companies and classes, as well as being the facilitator of the collaboration. Every year, they hold an award ceremony where they nominate the companies of the year.
This year, FKI was the recipient of the award as the adoption company of the year. The reason was, among other things, that we have been responsible for one of the very best adoption processes, with many visits over several years. Throughout the process, we have shown that it does not require a large company with many employee resources to have a school class attached. On the other hand, it requires committed and motivated employees – and that we have! The children have gained insight into an exciting company, which houses production (sheet metal department, welding, assembly, warehousing/shipping), a technical department and administration, and which has connections to large parts of the world.
As Verninge School only has classes up to and including the 6th grade, this is unfortunately our last school year with the class. We hope that we can “adopt” a new class when this process is completed.
