Organizing everyday life and not losing sight of the future perspective – that is currently difficult for trainees. According to HR managers, the ongoing economic uncertainty is leaving clear traces in Germany. In the current Randstad Ifo personnel manager survey (Q3 2021), 31 percent observe that the well-being of their trainees is changing negatively. 26 percent expect the apprentices’ performance to deteriorate. Large companies with more than 250 employees: express concern about the mental and physical condition of their junior staff (38%).
Every fifth HR manager doesn’t know whether trainees are doing well or badly
Overall, 39 percent of those surveyed see no deterioration in their wellbeing. 21 percent do not know whether their offspring are doing better or worse. “Especially in the current transition phase from the Corona situation to the new normal, it is important to closely accompany young professionals and to be sensitive to their concerns,” emphasizes Richard Jager, CEO of Randstad Germany. “In this way, companies strengthen the bond with them and avoid dropping out of training.”
Trainee support: training companies retrofit
Training companies react to the situation among their apprentices. The majority creates new offers against mental and physical stress. 57 percent of HR managers have invested in the technical equipment of their apprentices. 40 percent seek close contact with their offspring in personal consultation hours and 11 percent in mentoring programs. Around a quarter (26%) rely on the care of the company doctor and almost a fifth (19%) on a special health offer. “Constant stress and overload often have a long-term effect on the psyche. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to strengthen resilience across all age groups,” says Richard Jager.
