Germany has a capacity shortage of more talented employees, but the country's passion of bureaucracy has been a big impediment to luring candidates from abroad. It must keep up with the times in the face of a continuous skills shortage. As a result, Germany has agreed to make it simpler for people from outside the EU to relocate there for employment, with new laws on the way to help recruit fresh talent from around the world.

The initiative to modify the Skilled Immigration Act (which was approved by the Cabinet in March) was prompted by the country's significant skills shortage. Hubertus Heil, Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, warned the Financial Times that if nothing is done, Germany will be short 7 million jobs by 2035.

Several years ago, the government created the Make it in Germany platform, which is geared for foreign employees.

Some of the abilities that are lacking in the nation are in the IT industry, which is noteworthy given that tech corporations like Germany. Apple, Amazon, and Airbnb have already expressed interest in establishing operations there. Meanwhile, the country serves as an incubator for a variety of companies, in addition to domestic technological giants such as SAP and Zalando.

However, it has historically been difficult for employees from outside of Europe to relocate to Germany. Heil is adamant about changing this. He is concerned that a skills deficit would put a "brake" on Germany's economic progress, especially when skilled baby boomers leave in the coming years and their positions become available.

He is in the process of revising legislation in order to recruit more people from in other countries who can provide desperately needed abilities. This would make it simpler for international employees to find work in Germany without having to have a German professional certificate.

This new system will include what is known as a "chancenkarte" or "opportunity card." It specifies the admission standards, which include a points system based on elements such as occupational training or a degree, experience, and age. If candidates get enough points, they will be permitted to search for work in Germany. Every year, the government will issue a specific number of these cards.

Moving to a foreign country might be difficult, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to learn about another culture. Previously, persons travelling to Germany for employment from outside the EU were referred to as "Gastarbeiter" or "guest workers."

Hubertus Heil, on the other hand, says he wants the emphasis to be on making individuals feel accepted and incorporated into society, rather than seeing them as transient members of the community.

Major technology companies have been coming to Germany to establish bases. Along with a wide range of startups, Berlin is home to Zalando, Google, and Facebook; Munich is home to Apple's European Silicon Design Center and Amazon Web Services; and Hamburg is home to Dropbox, Microsoft, and Airbnb.

It's easy to understand why they're drawn to the country: it boasts a solid welfare system, a low crime rate, high incomes, fantastic daycare, and superb healthcare. Because of its closeness to other European nations, and traveling inside the EU is easy.
