Die Mühen der Suche nach Führungskräften : betriebliche Rekrutierungsstrategien in peripheren Regionen - am Beispiel der Weser-Ems-Region (The effort involved in searching for managerial staff : Company recruit-mentstrategies in peripheral regions – taking as an example the Weser-Ems-region)
Abstract"An adequate supply of highly qualified workers is a central pre-requisite for the ability of peripheral, structurally weak regions to develop. In order to take advantage of endogenous potentials, bottlenecks in human potential must be overcome by means of support from outside. An important element in this is migration. Taking as an example the Weser-Ems-region, which is situated in north-western Germany, the strategies used by local enterprises to attempt to motivate managerial staff to move from other regions are shown and the level of success achieved in this is described. As is shown, the regional labour market has lost significance for the upper segment in the course of structural changes in the economy, which has led to an increase in the necessity for cross-regional searches in order to fill managerial posts adequately. As enterprises in peripheral locations have poor starting conditions in the cross-regional competition for highly qualified workers, this development demands that more and more enterprises mobilise considerable resources for the recruitment of staff. Although the findings indicate that the potential of workers willing to migrate is greater and more diverse than is often assumed, they also show that certain types of enterprise have great difficulty in overcoming independently the personnel-related disadvantages resulting from the location, and require support through the regional structural policy."
