Employment sector Business & Technology: successfully closing the gap in industrial enterprise
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 enterprise
Digitisation covers all sectors of employment - thus the employment market is also characterised by fundamental structural change, which leads 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 enterprise, the areas of Research and Development, Organisation as well as IT are therefore becoming increasingly crucial as the work environment is characterised by innovation and constant processes of change.
In this context, professionals with multi-sector career histories 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 can boast 8000 companies in the sector of industrial manufacturing and industry-oriented services with 420,000 jobs, according to the Austrian Economic Chambers.
The good news: last but not least, industrial businesses have now returned to their position as attractive employers and as drivers of economic growth.
Overall however in the technology sector there is a lack of highly qualified employees. We can help you to close this gap.
