„Mechanical and plant engineering industry urgently seeks skilled workers“

Commenting on the current situation on the labour market, VDMA Executive Director Thilo Brodtmann explains: "Despite the still tense Corona situation, demand for labour in the mechanical and plant engineering industry remains high.

The number of registered jobs in December 2021 was about twice as high as at the end of the previous year. Above all, skilled workers are in demand. According to a VDMA survey conducted at the beginning of December, 67 percent of companies intend to expand their core workforce in 2022.“

In the current year, demand will even increase. According to a VDMA survey from early December, 67 percent of companies plan to expand their core workforce in 2022. However, according to an earlier survey, more than 40 percent of the companies surveyed expect fewer qualified and highly skilled workers to be available in the future. Policymakers must therefore support companies in counteracting the shortage of skilled workers. An effective immigration policy is just as much a part of this as an education policy that focuses more on technical skills."
