Germany attracts international talent, but can it offer career opportunities? Germany is an attractive location with its positive economic outlook and highly international business sector. Faced with a global marketplace and the need for trained professionals, businesses are investing in top talent. Yet many people who come to Germany to study or start their careers face hurdles: Companies want people who speak German, English and other languages, and often, qualifications earned abroad are not recognized. This stands in the way of promotion, and talented people therefore look to other countries to climb the career ladder. Retaining talent involves cultural knowledge, respect, and cooperation – not just financial investment and an understanding of markets.

What can companies and policymakers do to retain talent and make Germany more attractive for international professionals?

  • Experience the latest insights from science and business.
  • Be inspired by companies who successfully integrate international talent.
  • Discuss opportunities and strategies for offering careers to international
    talent with HR experts and business leaders.
  • Meet international students from top universities: ESMT, ESCP Europe and
    the Hertie School of Governance.

Enjoy this exclusive networking event and prepare your organisation for future
HR challenges.
