Abstract:
The study investigates drivers and barriers of German horticulturists to train mentally challenged personnel as skilled labour. In 2015, 12 in-depth interviews with employers and their employees in ornamental and vegetable production were conducted. All interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analysed, using qualitative content analysis. Employers and employees interviewed reported both positive and negative experiences when training mentally challenged personnel. They emphasized personal values, such as family tradition, social motivations, and the joy they derive from teaching. Financial aspects were simultaneously seen as drivers of and barriers to inclusion.
