Future-directed companies face structural transformation
EU project SWOPS presents counseling model for human resource managers
Berlin, 03. August 2016. Companies that want to be prepared for the future must actively face up to the structural transformation. The practical EU project SWOPS (the term stands for structural change-oriented personnel strategy) has developed key areas for action and provides a hands-on advice tool for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) across Europe in German and English. The tool acts like a compass through a process of change and enables a successful structural change-, gender and future-oriented personnel strategy. A central aspect of SWOPS was the study of equal opportunities in decision-making positions. Especially for SMEs this will be crucial since they faced with the consequences of demographic change and the crisis in human resources to a greater extent than larger companies or corporations.
