Employer in Hungary

Director of ProLicht Hungary Ltd.

Levente's Story

We are gradually facing a situation in Hungary where there are only two types of qualified professionals: those who we can’t afford to hire and those who have already left the country. We kept hearing that many migrants had arrived to Hungary and we were sure that they could be a valuable contribution to our company. We began by hiring a designer at our location in Hildesheim, Germany - a refugee from Afghanistan.

We prefer applicants who have good Hungarian language skills. Still, if there are no candidates with these language skills - we consider other options. This is how Samatar (Sami) from Somalia joined our team. Everything with Sami’s recruitment has turned out better than expected. Sami earned a lot of respect and trust from the staff here due to his level of motivation and professionalism. Our local workforce is made up of employees from a rather closed community, but if the staff can see that the new colleague is willing to work hard and wants to contribute to the team effort, they will accept them regardless of their nationality or colour.

The reason why we employ refugees is not because there can be cheaper staff costs, but because they are really motivated to work. They don’t shy away from hard work; we can weld much more aluminum this way, as they contribute to a higher productivity rate. If we hire more refugees in the future, we would like to organize social events and get-togethers with all staff, to encourage a mutual sharing of cultural and traditional aspects.  

ProLicht Hungary Ltd. creates visual brand designs, develops and supplies sign ware. The turnover of the company last year was 7 million euro.
