For the second time, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) and the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts (ZDH) have awarded the "Wir für Anerkennung" (We for Recognition) company prize to honour entrepreneurial engagement in the field of recognition of foreign qualifications.
The company prize is awarded as part of the "Company Recognition of Professional Qualifications" project and is intended to provide information on the recognition of foreign professional qualifications and to motivate companies to support employees with foreign qualifications.
By 31 May 2018, companies and institutions have the opportunity to apply for the award if they use professional recognition as an instrument for recruiting professionals and support skilled workers with foreign qualifications in the recognition process. For further information and the application form, please visit the homepage of the recognition award http://www.anerkennungspreis.de/unternehmenspreis/bewerben
Companies profit from the reliable assessment of the recognition authorities. They will be informed about which qualification is comparable with the foreign vocational qualification. Based on this, you will be able to offer customized further training courses and highlight attractive development potential. This helps to retain professional staff and creates transparency in personnel recruitment.
Further information on the recognition of foreign degrees can be found on our find-it-in-frm portal.
Companies have many opportunities to support their international employees. You will find some interesting suggestions on our portal.
We are excited about the award ceremony in autumn 2018 and wish all participating companies and institutions in FrankfurtRheinMain every success.
