Zeitarbeit hat sich fuer die deutsche Wirtschaft zu einem wichtigen Flexibilisierungsinstrument entwickelt. Dem zunehmenden Mangel an neuen, qualifizierten Zeitarbeitnehmern kann auch in der Zeitarbeit durch die Qualifizierung bestehender Mitarbeiter begegnet werden. Auch wenn Weiterbildung oft noch ein Stiefkind in der Zeitarbeit ist, zeigen sich Erfolgssteigerungen von Zeitarbeitsunternehmen durch Weiterbildung. Investitionen in die Weiterbildung von Zeitarbeitskraeften amortisieren sich nicht nur durch hoehere Verleihsaetze, sondern auch durch eine gesteigerte Attraktivitaet fuer Mitarbeiter und Kunden. Dieser Beitrag soll beantworten, (1) welche Bedingungen das Auftreten und den Umfang betrieblicher Weiterbildung durch Personaldienstleister beeinflussen und (2) inwieweit Weiterbildung ein Erfolgsfaktor fuer Personaldienstleister darstellt. Unsere Studie zeigt, dass sowohl Strukturmerkmale der Verleiher als auch die Nutzungsmotive der Entleiher den Weiterbildungsumfang beeinflussen. Darueber hinaus weisen wir nach, dass Weiterbildung die Wettbewerbsfaehigkeit von Personaldienstleistern foerdert.
