Finding employees – and keeping them
Around three quarters (72%) of chemical plants and companies are considering keeping senior employees past the usual retiring age as part of their workforce, and two thirds (67%) want to secure their specialists’ loyalty to counteract the lack of qualified specialists. These are the results of a survey among 100 German HR managers working for the industry. Suggestions to professionalize the recruiting process, increase further training programs and give the training a more practical orientation in general received an even higher percentage of approval.
