Chemistry and Pharmaceuticals

The lack of qualified staff will jeopardize Germany as a location for the chemical industry!

The increasing growth of the German chemical industry might be thwarted by the lack of qualified staff (experts as well as executives) very soon.

According to the most HR executives within the industry, there will be a significant lack of qualified experts, specialists and executives within the German chemical and pharmaceutical industry in the year 2020.

The chemicals industry in Germany is one of the branches with the highest innovation intensity. 20 percent of all global announced chemistry patents are from Germany. Also in terms of the number of employees in this branch Germany leads in the European ranking.

The increasing demand for chemical products as a result of the growing wealth in the emerging countries will leverage the demand for employees in this branch.

Therefore in future companies have to enhance the training of highly qualified staff and ensure long-term commitment. Especially executives and specialists will be faced with challenges due to the constantly growing globalization.

Decreasing numbers of qualified applicants, coming along with the demographic trend will lead to the situation that a significant amount of job openings will be vacant. A lot of vacancies cannot be staffed with the appropriate candidates.

As a matter of fact, the current recruiting procedures need to be reviewed carefully. A professional support by an external recruiting specialist should be considered, especially for complex search processes within a critical time frame.
