Good opportunities for mature professionals

By the end of 2012, there were twelve percent more jobs for employees aged 60 or over than only a year before. This seems to be a clear sign of the changes under way in the labour market that were brought about by the raised retirement age. The Federal Employment Agency has released new evidence for these changes. In September last year, almost 1.5 million people aged between 60 and 65 were in employment, with a general increase in the number of jobs of 1.5 percent.

Turning the Tables in Mentoring

The current generation of managers is still made up of digital immigrants – a term that covers all users in our digital world that did not grow up immersed in the media of the digital age, but had to acquire the right tools and techniques over the course of their working life. When one considers the many challenges of the digital age and the fact that many companies have come to use social networks effectively for their commercial purposes, this was a steep learning curve. And it is true lifelong learning, because technological progress never rests and never stops. There is vast potential still lying dormant. more...

Setting up shop: costlier than expected

Many online entrepreneurs tend to underestimate the costs associated with the launch and day-to-day running of web shops. Any businessman or woman faced with the decision of whether to go online for the sale and distribution of their goods would do well to get a sense for the costs that this decision will entail. The shop systems themselves are, surprisingly, usually not the heftiest item on the bill. The retail world has changed at its core since the spread of the World Wide Web. Where quality that could be seen and felt hands-on used to be the dealbreaker, pricing alone has become the prime factor. more...

New perspectives in welfare management

Companies have become increasingly interested in the health and wellbeing of their staff over the last few years. They have recognized that job satisfaction is an essential part of this. Originally intended to reduce the number of accidents at work and to understand the causes of long-term or frequent absences, employers’ preventative efforts have begun to extend to their people’s private lives. Firms are increasingly concerned about how their people manage to reconcile their work with their private situation, how much pressure rests on the shoulders of executives, whether there are any worries or problems affecting their people at home, or whether their employees feel exposed to too much pressure to perform or job-related stress. more...

Management and the need for strategic planing

They are doing a tough job under the constant scrutiny of a critical public: top managers cannot afford to make real mistakes. At German-language businesses, the last year was a particularly busy period in terms of the coming-and-going of managers. While this does not come as a surprise for many insiders, the general public often cannot understand what is happening. The average manager spends 7.6 years in a post before moving on or making way for the next new broom requested by the board. In 2011 alone, every sixth manager found himself trading places – in the pharmaceutical sector, that figure stands at one in three managers. Looking abroad, the fluctuation levels of managers at German-language businesses are not yet at the top end of the spectrum with its rate of 16.7%, although this already exceeds the worldwide average of 14.2%. Only India, Brazil, and Russia experience higher rates of fluctuation at approx. 22%. The lowest rate of manager attrition can be found in China, where only about 7% of managers moved on in the reporting period.

The PPV AG presents promising industries

What do engineers, care managers, and logistics specialists have in common? If the forecasts are right, people in these job groups will soon be swamped by a flood of lucrative career opportunities. Despite the still quite substantial unemployment figures, Germany is experiencing an unparalleled scarcity of specialists, which will only worsen over the next few years. This affects not only jobs that require an academic qualification: vocational qualifications are equally affected by it. The estimate is that around one million jobs for university graduates and 1.3 million jobs for people with vocational qualifications will remain vacant by 2015. more...
