WAGNER collaborates with other market leaders to create a network
Together with six other businesses in the Hanover region, WAGNER is one of the initiators of "Initiative. Marktführer. Hannover e.V."; a network whose goal it is to jointly find solutions for demographic change and the scarcity of qualified staff by opening up new avenues for attracting additional qualified workers at both regional and cross-regional level.
In addition to WAGNER, eight other market leading businesses are members of the network. These are: Bahlsen, KIND Hörgeräte, the Jäger Group, Sennheiser electronic, Hüttenes Albertus Chemische Werke, HaCon, the Vereinigten Schmirgel- und Maschinen-Fabriken (VSM) and LPKF Laser & Electronics AG.
The intention is to implement joint programmes and strategies for staff development and recruitment in order to promote aspects of knowledge exchange and transfer. Further businesses will be invited to join the initiative in the future. Potential candidates must have achieved a position of global or market leadership, operate their own internationally relevant research department or product development department and have their head office or a business division in the Hanover region. The Beschäftigungsförderung der Region Hannover and the Allgemeine Arbeitgebervereinigung Hannover und Umgebung e. V. (AGV), two government organisations represented by regional president Hauke Jagau, also number among the initiators and strategic partners of the network.
The Initiative presents itself uniformly at a federal state level under the brand of ZUKUNFT INC. Participation took place in various exhibitions under this brand name and was also used for a recruitment campaign at 10 High Schools during the summer semester of 2011. Job offers, News and Actions are already published on the associated platform: www.zukunft-inc.de.
