More support for SMEs in personnel development and securing skilled workers

Economics Minister Martin Dulig: “An additional three million euros for advice on the subject of skilled workers and workers”


Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and members of the liberal professions are supported by the Saxon Ministry of Economic Affairs in order to successfully overcome the challenges of transformation. Advice funding is a proven instrument that can also be used for the topics of personnel development and securing skilled workers.

»Saxon companies already know and use the advisory funding. We are now providing an additional three million euros for the consulting focus on personnel development and securing skilled workers. This means that companies can get professional advice on numerous issues and thus be better positioned," said Economics and Labor Minister Martin Dulig.

The questions companies have about this are diverse. They range from the introduction of flexible, sustainable working time models to the management of internal company transformation processes to modern personnel recruitment and retention activities. External know-how is also often required to attract workers and skilled workers on the international labor market.

With the further development of the Skilled Immigration Act, numerous easier access options to the German labor market have been created. However, small and medium-sized companies in particular often lack experience in international recruiting. »Our advisory support also comes into play here. Take advantage of this opportunity and get expert advice from competent personnel service providers on how to attract international specialists and workers to your company," continued Minister Dulig.

Advice for at least five days is supported with a subsidy of up to 50 percent and a maximum of 10.000 euros per year.
