The shortage of skilled workers is steadily increasing
The demographic aging is particularly evident in rural areas of many industrialized nations. There is an urgent need for qualified employees in fields such as healthcare, craftsmanship, industry, and agriculture. This shortage of skilled workers is likely to worsen in non-urban areas in the coming years due to low birth rates, further emigration, and increased mortality.
The consequences are far-reaching
Without immigration from other EU countries and third countries, job positions often remain unfilled. This poses a risk of supply shortages in the healthcare sector, relocation of companies from structurally weak regions, and a further decline in regional attractiveness.

Our services at a glance
In order to successfully manage your personnel acquisition and retention, we offer you a multi-faceted, comprehensive range of services:
Workshops & Trainings
In workshops, we develop support formats in operation and society, for example, with management levels, employees, and municipal actors. This forms the basis for the guarantee of success that we provide to our customers. If needed, we also prepare your company for the arrival of new colleagues. We design in-house further education, such as intercultural trainings or support for team-building processes, in cooperation with recognised experts.
We analyse your personnel requirements and, working side by side with you, develop concepts for recruiting and retaining skilled workers that are tailored to your specific needs. This includes recruiting personnel as well as potential-oriented recruitment strategies and their implementation.
Often, human resources departments are overwhelmed. We are happy to support you in personnel planning, determining turnover rates and vacancy periods, as well as resulting additional expenses and loss of return on investment, or organisational changes that make your company more attractive.
Just as society is changing, for example aging and digitalisation, work processes are also changing. This is not new. What is new, however, is the speed and complexity of the changes in work and society. In order to support your company in coping with the need for personnel and organisational adjustments, we accompany you with the help of agile methods as part of an INQA coaching program.
We work nationwide and internationally in cooperation with experts and scientists from various disciplines. In active discussion with you, we identify the specific demand for skilled workers in your company and region.
Our clients are companies, business associations, and political decision-makers looking for skilled workers. We determine the regions of origin for their recruitment and selection worldwide based on your specifications and scientific knowledge.
Our services also include preparing the receiving regions and companies. We implement the concepts we have developed and accompany them with scientifically sound and practice-oriented expertise.
Our services include, for example:
Identification of potential source regions for recruiting skilled workers
Development of specific recruitment strategies in selected source regions, elaboration of promising approaches, and continuous adaptation of recruitment processes
Targeted and comprehensive preparation of the receiving region, its population, companies, and civil society institutions
Development and implementation of a communication and integration strategy using innovative dialogue formats
This offers the following advantages:
Reduced risk of returning or migrating skilled workers and improved cost-effectiveness in companies.
The foundation for regional revitalisation, for example, in the form of sports clubs, cultural offerings, or expanded networks. This increases the attractiveness of your location.
As a result of these positive developments, we observe an improvement in the quality of living and residential conditions, leading to a general decrease in migration rates and the upgrading and transformation of rural locations.
