Recruitment of skilled employees
In view of the advancing digitisation and the medium-term and long-term impacts of the ongoing demographic change, the availability of specialised skilled employees is becoming an increasingly important factor behind competitiveness.
This is the reason why the Cluster complements the services and products offered by the two economic development agencies of the two states for such holistic topics by providing additional products and services for everyone within the Cluster. In addition, the Cluster provides support with regard to the recruitment of skilled employees by offering information, concept ideas, projects, formats, tools and by establishing contact with relevant partners at the regional level.
There are many varied products and services in Brandenburg for recruiting skilled employees, for their specific further education and for creating business loyalty.
