Over the past three years, the company has welcomed and employed 20 remarkable individuals with disabilities, comprising one-fifth of its workforce.
Responding to the humanitarian crisis stemming from the Ukrainian conflict, SoliTek extended its support by welcoming and providing employment opportunities for 32 war refugees since February 24, 2022. These actions exemplify the company's proactive stance towards embracing diversity, creating opportunities, and contributing positively to society during times of need.
During the award ceremony, Vilius Aleknavičius eloquently presented SoliTek’s diversity initiatives, earning the company recognition as the second finalist honored by the esteemed panel of judges. SoliTek garnered praise for its dedicated efforts in employing individuals with disabilities and supporting Ukrainian refugees, reinforcing its commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
