Specialized staff for your company – with our support

Calculations by the Institute for State and Municipal Development have shown that by the year 2030 the potential workforce will have dropped by around 30,000 persons compared to the year 2010. This will have a whole range of impacts.

A smaller workforce would mean that fewer specialist staff are available. This in turn means people might leave the region to join competing economic areas, leading to a disproportionate loss of available personnel.

Developing Dortmund’s educational and training landscape for the future is a key concern of the Economic Development Agency Dortmund. That is why we are dedicated to developing the location- and sector-related workforce here, shaping the local economy and promoting female specialists within Dortmund’s business environment. We will help you to get your company fit for the future!
