Fachkräftegewinnung und -sicherung für KMU aus dem Handwerk

  • The present thesis on "recruiting skilled employees in the field of apprenticeship for SMEs in the crafts using the example of best practice companies" consists of a theoretical and a practical part. In theory the terms “crafts” and “small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)” are defined. The current situation of recruiting skilled employees in the field of apprenticeship is also explained in more detail. It can be seen that the number of new vocational training contracts decreases progressively. For the most part the reason for this is the failure of merging companies and young people. Furthermore the concept of “best practice” is discussed. The practical part consists of a description of the institution “Chamber of Crafts Karlsruhe” in general and particularly in relation to the topic of apprenticeship. The Chamber represents the interests and concerns of the craft, advises and assists the member companies in different areas especially in the search and placement of apprentices. Companies are examined, which set a good example for the recruitment of apprentices. Based on interviews with 21 “best practice craft enterprises” (17 SMEs, 4 larger companies) different ways of acquisition of apprentices are demonstrated. For each company, the recruiting measures used are represented by percentage depending on the success rate of the obtained apprentices. As a result, the applications for the acquisition of apprentices of SMEs and larger companies are summarized and compared. The aim of the thesis is that the craft industry, be it SMEs or larger businesses, learn and benefit from each other. They should get an overview of what other companies do for the acquisition of apprentices and how they adapt and expand their recruitment activities to the situation of labor shortages in the area of apprenticeship.
