Many companies are already feeling the effects of the shortage of skilled workers. Small and medium-sized enterprises often lack the capacity to plan and implement employee retention and personnel development measures. For such companies, a validation process is a way of communicating their appreciation to their employees.
So far, companies:
- made their employees aware of the validation procedure,
- exempted their employees for the participation in the external assessment,
- assisted their employees in the self-assessment and the application procedure, and
- made their own premises available for the external assessment of their employees.
Through these or other support measures, companies can actively demonstrate that they are interested in the personal and professional development of their employees.
Interested companies can contact the local advisers of the chambers involved in the project.
