Weiterbildung in kleinen und mittleren Betrieben : ein deutsch-dänischer Vergleich (In-company further training in small and medium-sized companies * a German-Danish comparison)
Abstract"It is true that participation in in-company further training has increased considerably in Germany over the past few years, nevertheless it ranks in the lower-medium range in European comparison. At the same time, the demand for skilled manpower is increasing steadily while the chances of finding employment are declining more and more for low-skilled or unskilled workers. Especially small and medium-sized companies in Germany are affected by a lack of skilled labour despite high unemployment. Investment in the employees' human capital in order to adapt to the company's demand for vocational skills is a key instrument to meet these difficulties. In this study, the commitment to in-company further training of small and medium-sized companies in Germany and Denmark is empirically examined and evaluated, using the data of a Europe-wide company survey (CVTS II), and taking into account the arrangement of the further training systems in both countries. Seen from an education and employment policy perspective, Denmark is very successful, which is also reflected in a strong commitment to in-company further training. Therefore, the question is investigated whether the deficits in further training in small and medium-sized German companies can be attributed originally to company size, or whether the institutional arrangements of the different further training systems play the key role."
