IAB-Stellenerhebung: Geflüchtete kommen mehr und mehr am Arbeitsmarkt an



"Long-term projections predict that the German labour force will shrink. Refugees could contribute to meeting the demand for skilled labour. Language and skill training however require considerable effort by government, employers and the refugees themselves. Based on the IAB Job Vacancy Survey, we present some of the first experiences that employers have made with refugees in the years 2014/2015. We also examine impediments and potential success factors to integrating refugees into the labour market from the employers' point of view. The IAB Job Vacancy Survey shows that by the fourth quarter of 2016, almost ten percent of German establishments have had initial experiences with refugees who had arrived since 2014/2015. The corresponding share of establishments in the second quarter of 2016 was still at six percent." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
