Majority: Majority without problems
The big ones Company obviously have fewer problems - this confirms the discussion that I published here yesterday. The job exchange Jobstairs, for example, has interviewed its members, 56 large German companies. They are largely satisfied with the current number and quality of applicants for 2012.
More than two-thirds of respondents see no change or even an improvement over the previous year. 67,6 percent of the surveyed companies are satisfied with the number of applications received.
The demand for technical professions is currently just a little short. Trainees for metal and electrical professions, such as mechatronics or industrial mechanics, but also budding railroad workers, are in particular demand.
Applicant: Quality with small drawbacks
64,7 percent of the surveyed companies are largely satisfied with the quality of the applicants, with 2,9 percent even exceeding expectations. But: 32,4 percent complain about missing or inadequate qualifications among prospective job entrants, in particular, lacking good academic performance in the relevant subjects.
However, 36,4 percent of the survey participants are already aware of the fact that they will occupy all of their training places for 2012.
Small businessmen: Too complicated?
So we have no professional defenses and companies whine on a high level? Maybe. But smaller companies, often less paying or less known, have problems. Antje Rabenalt of the future in the center has interviewed some smaller companies and kindly made a few statements available to me:
- "I can build and manage kindergartens, but there are no educators I can run you with."
- "I have so many jobs, but I can not work without a locksmith."
- "I'd like to grow, but I can not do it without it."
- "This winter, my customers will have to wait at least 4 weeks for an installer."
- "My employees are getting restless. There are no Azbis in the company where they can pass on their experience. "
So is there a shortage of skilled workers or are the small business owners just too scared to find the right people, like Dr. Brenke has been making fun of? In any case, it turns out that one has to look at the topic very differentiated.
