Together, we have gathered a wealth of experience with international healthcare professionals and their placement. Not all experiences were positive, which is why we decided to do it better!

The majority of German hospitals and nursing organizations require foreign nursing staff. Unfortunately, most lack effective concepts that consider all dimensions necessary for the successful integration of this crucial workforce.

Many of the international nursing professionals have left Germany shortly after arriving, as they weren’t able to explore the opportunities here. Boredom and homesickness also contribute to this.

At this point, traditional placement services stop; we keep going!

Flegisto® assists new employees, along with German employers, throughout the integration process and in building networks.
