What does Central Saxony offer companies?
More than 14,000 small and medium-sized companies are found in Central Saxony. They play a major role here and are thus actively supported with various projects. Central Saxony’s entrepreneurs are well aware that they are part of a business community, which is why they meet once a year at the Central Saxony Forum to swap stories with experts and partners from practice, combining their respective forces to promote the region.
The skilled labour alliance supports companies with continuing education schemes, e.g. in the fields of human resources management and leadership culture. Central Saxony is especially keen on making itself more attractive to young skilled workers, with its careers portal and networking centre for skilled workers, where companies can reach out directly to young people with their training and job offers.
In January 2019, the first skilled labour forum took place. There, companies from Central Saxony can regularly discuss their experiences in attracting and supporting qualified staff. The main focus is on older and international skilled workers. The creative and cultural industries also receive a great deal of support in Central Saxony: in 2018, the first networking meet-up was held for the region's creative workers.
