The challenge of a shortage of skilled workers: Plannable access to external capacities

Access external capacities emergency

Staff overload, difficulties in filling vacancies and unrealized project or production targets are currently among the biggest challenges facing medium-sized companies. The predicted shortage of skilled workers has become a reality. By accessing external capacities, entrepreneurs can minimize the risk.

HR departments are unable to find qualified and experienced employees who meet the requirements of the job or who are willing to commit to the company in the long term. This overloads existing staff and pushes them to their physical and mental limits. The shortage of skilled workers has become a cross-industry and cross-departmental challenge that can develop into a business crisis. 

Shortage of skilled workers endangers sensitive business areas

The lack of capacity and resources in companies is now also affecting the risk management area, which is responsible for identifying, assessing and monitoring corporate risks. Employees in this sensitive area are responsible for developing strategies to mitigate and monitor various risks. Without sufficiently qualified employees, it is difficult for companies to identify potential risks in good time and initiate suitable countermeasures. 

At the same time, the overload of the responsible personnel and management regularly leads to inattention or carelessness and, as a consequence, to wrong decisions in the assessment of potential risks.
