The Rebirth Of The Cafeteria System

Why enterprises in the face of the shortage again should worry about your payment system! “Saarbrucken, according to the German Institute for economic research (DIW), 25.11.2010 – the discussion about shortages in Germany is a mirage”. The Berlin Institute see no indication that currently and in the future the qualified professionals could go out of the Federal Republic, the Hamburg-based news magazine “Der Spiegel” reported on Saturday advance from a study of the DIW. But the reality in the enterprise is different, knows to report one of the top recruiters from Germany, Heiko Banaszak. In his opinion it is high time to act. First of all, it is important to integrate the existing employees to the company and to make parallel to an increase in the attractiveness for potential employees.

He argues for this reason for a rebirth of the cafeteria system. A survey by Towers Perrin in 2008 among 3000 workers occupied, that is just 50 percent see the company as connected. The remaining 50 percent are open to opportunities. According to an empirical validation by the b + p consulting and personnel among medium-sized business leaders this proportion has changed dramatically during the crisis in favour of the employer. Employees were far less willing to change because they were afraid of usually 6-month probationary period mainly at your potential new employer.

After the press however sees the crisis as a finished and now blows the Horn of the impending shortage, many employees are aware of their value on the job market again. The loyalty decreases again significantly and employees are actively looking for opportunities to improve. The question which arises here is: How do I maintain key staff? As Heiko Banaszak with his staff at lunch in the cafeteria and satisfied but with a completely different menu to the cashier he approached, he recalled a model that everyone many years ago as a lecturer of the University of the Saarland was permitted to teach: the cafeteria system, a remuneration model that was hotly debated in the late 80s.
