In Germany, some sectors and regions are already experiencing a shortage of skilled labour, and in light of the demographics, this trend is likely to continue. This is not only a matter for policymakers to solve – all companies in Germany can do their part by recruiting from the pool of well-qualified professionals with degrees or vocational qualifications from abroad. We explain why it pays to look abroad:
1. New business opportunities through diversity and creativity
Qualified immigrants can provide creative impulses, paving the way for new opportunities for your company. By taking new approaches to problem solving and drawing on this cultural background, your company can also benefit from innovative business opportunities – especially on the international market.
2. Filling vacancies with qualified staff
The option of recruiting personnel from abroad helps you fill vacant positions in the long term. This potential for international skilled workers also increases your pool of applicants and your chances of finding a suitable candidate for your position.
