16. Qualifications

The company discloses what goals it has set and what measures it has taken to promote the employability of all employees, i.e. the ability of all employees to participate in the working and professional world, and in view of adapting to demographic change, and where risks are seen.

The success and performance of Fraunhofer UMSICHT is decisively influenced by the staff’s competencies. Human resources management and development are therefore considered to be central responsibilities at the institute. In addition to the promotion of young talents, human resources marketing and recruiting, both the needs-oriented qualification as well as the individual development planning of the staff are the focal points of human resources development. As part of the systematic human resources development at Fraunhofer UMSICHT, a comprehensive training program is being offered that includes thematic and cross-thematic qualification measures.
