Controlling in continuing training
at enterprises in European comparison
companies investigated in the project have been faced with continuous changes,
for instance concerning the earnings position, the investment level, production
forms and technologies, company structures and work organisation. Against
this background most of the companies expect that in future the overall
demand for employee qualifications and skills will also change.
Above all an increase in general qualifications such as social and methodological
skills is considered necessary. A large number of companies assume that
their employees will be more specialised in the future. A reduction in
the amount of specialisation on the other hand is rather rarely anticipated.
As far as the requirement level of semi-skilled and unskilled workers is
concerned, a decrease is more often reckoned with than an increase.
a lasting structural, technological and organisational change is taking
place and the requirement profile for employees is moving in the direction
of higher and supra-specialist qualifications as well as specialisation
in particular fields of expertise. At the same time, reinforced by the
increasing use of personnel employed for a limited time and temporary workers,
there is a constanct change in the corporate employee structure. In order
to cope with these permanent changes companies are assumed to require suitable
activities for all groups of employees (Krekel
et al. 2001, pp. 33f.).
survey carried out by the project on corporate training in Austria, the
Netherlands and Germany provides detailed evidence on the planning and
development of training activities, as outlined in the final publication
(Krekel et al. 2001, pp. 28-48).
