I feel that Häfele’s association with Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC), has experienced an analogous journey to this. Our similarities include our ability to pace ourselves with the dynamic requirements of this country, our ability to adapt to new methods of learning and growing; but most importantly, our apparent German roots. The variances that have complemented our association beautifully are dual in nature – while Häfele has absorbed promising and talented individuals from IGTC’s alumni into its core employee base; IGTC, on the other hand, has added Häfele as an essential Business Partner in all their endeavors. This journey of similarities and variances never fails to amaze, yet comfort me.
I would like to congratulate IGTC for building a successful and trustworthy institution that is adding a new and different dimension to learning. Their inherent approach of merging conceptual learning with practical internships has resulted in an outcome that is most promising. Häfele has already seen immense benefit in this approach, as the IGTC interns absorbed by the company over the last few years have come with fresh ideas, confident mindsets and most importantly, a seasoned maturity to be able to deal with the many complexities of a corporate structure.
