Probleme und Chancen lebenslangen Lernens aus betriebswirtschaftlicher Perspektive


  • Uschi Backes-Gellner

    () (Institute for Strategy and Business Economics, University of Zurich)


Lebenslanges Lernen allgemein und betriebliche Weiterbildung im Besonderen sind in den letzten Jahren aufgrund der sich wandelnden Arbeitsanforderungen zweifelsohne immer wichtiger geworden. Gleichzeitig hat jedoch die Beteiligung an Weiterbildung eher abgenommen. Während 2000 noch 43% aller Erwerbspersonen an einer Weiterbildungsmaßnahme teilnahmen, waren es im Jahre 2003 nur noch 41% (Berichtssystem Weiterbildung IX 2006). Erfreulicherweise ist aber der Anteil der Betriebe in Deutschland, die überhaupt Weiterbildung anbieten, nicht zurückgegangen, sondern leicht gestiegen, von 36% im Jahr 1999 auf 39% im Jahr 2005 (iwd 2007). Allerdings gab und gibt es eine sehr ungleiche unternehmensgrößenspezifische Beteiligung an betrieblicher Weiterbildung, die Anlass zur Sorge gibt.
