The labor market in the Euregio increasingly changes from an employer market to an employee market. In this light, working conditions and corporate culture play a growing important role in the competition for most suitable candidates. In this context, attention should also be paid to newly arrived immigrants in the wake of major refugee movements in the past few years.
In order to develop the potential of a diverse workforce in the best possible way global players have their own diversity departments which ensure that employees are promoted and supported as comprehensively as possible in terms of their needs and opportunities, too. But also small and medium-sized companies without similar resources can take measures to present themselves as attractive employers on the one hand, and to improve cooperation within their multicultural, diverse teams on the other.
The sixth “Innovation Forum”, on the 14th June at 04.00-05.30 pm., exemplifies how innovative euregional institutions can support and advance the social innovation process of small and medium-sized enterprises.
