"Time is a scarce resource!" – Small and medium-sized companies in particular often lack the means to develop and implement long-term staffing strategies. For that reason, the Free State of Saxony and the federal government plan to offer SMEs targeted support including various practical tips, tools and helpful checklists.

Where it has already worked: examples from practice

Some Saxon companies have already taken advantage of the varied range of support programmes. Among others, these include AMC Analytik & Messtechnik GmbH from Chemnitz, which received support with leadership development, improving the company’s HR management and with staff retention. The "Mailingwork" company received help from the "Unternehmenswert:Mensch" human asset programme, involving a review of the HR management system and the development of the corporate culture. Steinrestaurierung Neubert received support with leadership development, and coaching in leading from a distance.
