Strategic workforce planning (SWP) for the ports of Strasbourg and KehlCountries: France, Germany
- Economic development
- Spatial planning and development
Lead partner: Strasbourg Jobs and Training Centre (Maison de l’Emploi et de la Formation de Strasbourg)
All in all, over 550 firms, with nearly 13,300 employees, are located in the Strasbourg and Kehl port area, mainly in the industrial, transport/logistics, energy and waste management sectors.
In order to better assess the repercussions of changes (skills demanded and ageing of the labour force) on the professions, activities and human resources requirements in the ports of Strasbourg and Kehl, and to have long-term visibility in this regard, an SWP exercise was launched by the Strasbourg Jobs and Training Centre (Maison de l’Emploi et de la Formation de Strasbourg) and the Strasbourg Conurbation Development and Town Planning Agency
(ADEUS) in 2012.
Unlike traditional SWP exercises carried out by companies, this SWP is territorial in scope and therefore incorporates the combined issues concerning companies and professional sectors (human resources), employees (career paths) and territories (economic changes).
