19 Dublin, – , Hearing on immigration and integration Seite 19 Benefiting from Fraport´s experience - In which way could our policy be a model of good practice for other companies ? - A works agreement, negotiated between the executive board and the works council, requires a successful understanding under specific circumstances but eventually leads to a pragmatic and supported integration scheme Diversity and integration are an integral part of management responsibility and necessary for a successful company under conditions of globalization, when achieved ensures ROI Proper implementing and permanent monitoring of schemes for the integration of migrants and minorities are essential for long term success
