Education at Inwatec – New collaboration with Goodwings
Inwatec is all about creating and building machines for industrial laundries all over the world. We thereby aim to improve processes, save time and enhance our customers’ efficiency as well as decrease unpleasant working tasks for their employees. On the way of reaching all these goals, we are always on the look for young, passionate and inspired talents.
Artificial intelligence, robotics, electronics, craftsmanship as well as software engineering and development, logistics, sales,… – the possibilities are as varied as our desire to accompany young talents and support their development.
We want to help them discover their potentials and on the other side learn from their ideas and improve our business with the help of fresh ideas and creativity.
As of now, 15 out of 49 employees at Inwatec (30,6%) are student workers and apprentices. In addition to that, we support at least one student working on their bachelor or master project with us at Inwatec every semester. Thereby we hope to create a passion for robots, laundry automation and artificial intelligence amongst future #laundrynerds.
To always make sure that students know about us as an employer we try to keep close relations to schools and universities in and around Odense. Whenever possible we are part of student fairs, where we present our business, innovations and us, trying to get students as excited about Inwatec as we already are.
Furthermore, we offer pupils to do trial internships and we are in contact with the “Career in Denmark” office from SDU all year around. Organized by them we invite groups of students to come and see our offices and workshop area.
– On the 8th of May the next “Projekt- og praktikdag” will take place at the technical faculty of the Southern University Denmark in Odense. We will be present and hopefully inspire students to work with us as well as get inspired by them. We are looking forward to meeting as many interested students as possible and will hopefully find engineers looking to partner up for their bachelor or master projects. We are convinced that an early corporation can be fruitful for both parties and are always happy to find engaged and motivated students. –
Next to strong relationships with schools and universities, Inwatec just partnered up with Goodwings – an online hotel booking platform that combines traveling with a passion for creating a sustainable future. With every business trip from now on, we support the Human Practice Foundation (HPF) aiming to provide quality education in Nepal, Kenya, and Denmark. Their mission is to create “A world where everyone can have access to quality education and decent jobs.”
Thanks to Goodwings, organizations like the Human Practice Foundation can receive support from companies very easily. By simply booking hotel rooms for work or private trips via Goodwings everyone at Inwatec automatically raises funds for our chosen charity HPF. That money is directly reinvested into the financing of school building projects, quality education programmes and helps developing local business projects like tea and coffee farms.
We are proud to be part of Goodwings’ mission to help make the world a little bit better and support organizations like Human Practice Foundation that devote their time, energy and passion to important projects.
Education takes on an important role at Inwatec, both in the form of locally offering possibilities of learning as well as helping those that don’t have access to education in the first place.
We are aware of the importance of quality education and hope to convey our passion for laundry machines, the newest technology, and a welcoming working environment. With the publication of the 17 global sustainable development goals set by the UN, we can proudly say that we take on our part aiming to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” – for almost 10 years by now. From the start, Inwatec put a big emphasis on supporting local young talents and on offering opportunities in the form of student jobs, internships, bachelor and master project support as well as mini-jobs for pupils. And we will continue to do so.
