Employment in Business & Technology Sectors: Successfully Closing the Gap in Industrial Enterprises
Experts with skills at the intersection between business and technology are seen as innovators and very much in demand. The scope for their skills is broad and includes areas such as quality assurance, process management, internal accounting, logistics, marketing and sales.
Structural change in industrial enterprises
Digitisation affects all sectors of employment - thus the employment market is also characterised by fundamental structural change, which is leading to a decrease of enterprise focussed solely on manufacturing. This is described as the fourth Industrial Revolution (Revolution 4.0): "smart" machines with their processors, sensors and wireless connections need people who understand how to use and market them. In industrial enterprises, the areas of Research and Development, Organisation and IT are becoming increasingly crucial as the work environment is characterised by innovation and constant processes of change.
In this context, professionals with career histories in multiple industries at the interface between business and technology are more in demand than ever. In order to retain or recruit the best employees here, a suitable professional setting must be provided: attractive working conditions, a good company atmosphere and a respectful environment are the name of the game.
Austria as a location boasts 8000 companies in industrial manufacturing and industry-oriented services with 420,000 jobs, according to the Austrian Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
The good news: industrial businesses have now returned to their position as attractive employers and drivers of economic growth.
However, there is a lack of highly qualified employees. We can help you to close this gap.
