Specialized working group: Qualified Labor Development

The specialized working group for Qualified Labor Development sees itself as a platform for the sharing of knowledge and experience. It seeks to inform, motivate and build bridges between relevant actors in the Munich Metropolitan Region in order to recruit qualified labor for the region, retain it and develop it in the long term. The work of the group focuses on specific areas of demand in the context of learning/education/knowledge management.

Goals and activities

 

To achieve its goals, the specialized working group aims

  • To build a platform for the sharing of knowledge and experience by organizing regular networking meetings
  • To contact relevant regional players directly
  • To cultivate network links with other EMM e.V. working groups
  • To contribute and communicate its own services, products, information and contacts

 

Since 2012, the specialized working group has organized public platform events on in-depth topics relating to the development of a qualified labor pool. To date, these events have tackled the following specific topics:

  • "Generation Gold: Older employees - a wealth of experience or a cost factor?" (2012)
  • "We can do more! Part-time vocational training" (2013)
