In the constantly changing world of work, continuing education and professional training are incredibly important.
The option to pursue additional qualifications helps secure a company’s competitiveness and jobs,
as well as ensuring the employability of its staff.
Having anticipated the growing importance of career-long training, IG Metall (union) and Südwestmetall (employer’s association)
entered into a joint agreement on qualifications back in 2001 for employees in the metal and electrical industry in Baden-Württemberg.
