The shortage of skilled workers has an impact
Despite the poor economic situation, many change jobs
Fluctuation on the Swiss labor market is currently high despite a possible recession. In an interview, personnel management expert Matthias Mölleney speaks of a wave of reorientation due to Corona.
According to HR expert Matthias Mölleney, companies have to sell themselves better in order to be attractive to employees.
In the statistics for reasons for dismissal, the hope for more wages from another employer is still at the top, he said in an interview with the “Neue Zürcher Zeitung” on Saturday. According to Mölleney, the need for appreciation has increased dramatically. The former head of HR at Swissair heads the Center for Human Resources Management & Leadership at the University of Economics in Zurich.
From surveys it can be read that many employees appreciate the possibility of working from home. “On the other hand, many feel separated from the rest of the company, not properly perceived.”
In addition, the shortage of skilled workers has changed the situation of the employees. After an interview, it is no longer the employer who gets in touch, but the applicant who makes the decision themselves.
With a view to the economy, “every worker will be wrestled for in the future,” said Mölleney. The Beverdige curve measures how the relationship between the unemployment rate and the number of vacancies changed over time. In the European Union, this indicator has been in the “death zone” since the end of the pandemic.
The lack of loyalty is increasingly becoming a risk for companies. According to Mölleney, a termination costs the company up to one year’s wages, depending on the employee’s level. In order for employees to go “an extra centimetre” for companies, companies would have to communicate more clearly what they offer their employees. (SDA)
