Providing security in volatile markets
Strong market volatility and short-term market crises challenge manufacturing companies. Those who can plan and employ resources with foresight achieve a significant competitive advantage. Human resources play a key role here.
At Fraunhofer IAO, we research and develop tools for a flexible workforce allocation.
We offer our clients solutions that help
- reduce workforce capacities in times of crisis without dismissing employees,
- enable quick ramp-up of manufacturing when required,
- avoid expensive and complex emergency measures such as short-time work, and
- secure long-term employment for qualified personnel.
Our solutions range from flexible working arrangements and employment conditions to additional shifts, work-time accounts and self-regulated workforce planning via smartphone.
We develop tailor-made flexibility concepts that are neutral and rooted in science. We begin by analyzing the current state of workforce planning and determine the company’s ideal level of flexibility. Together with our clients, we then design the perfect solution based on a modular system consisting of more than 20 different workforce flexibility instruments and assist in the implementation.
