“FasiBiS” – Securing skilled workers through education in the stamping and forming industry


The FasiBiS project, with the aim of establishing personnel development structures to secure skilled workers in the stamping and forming industry, is financed by the ESF initiative “Securing skilled workers: training and promoting equality”. The project supports small and medium-sized enterprises in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Increasing digitalisation in the world of work is also leading to changes in personnel management. New opportunities are emerging, but new challenges are also emerging in personnel development. As work processes change faster and more rapidly, employees* must become familiar with new technologies to the same extent. The qualification of employees* is thus becoming an increasingly important instrument in personnel management.

The starting point of the project is the current situation of the participating companies. By taking stock of the company’s (employment) situation, qualification requirements and qualification needs can be identified. The resulting qualification measures can range from instruction and instruction to continuing vocational training.

With the help of training pilots, who are provided by the company social partners in terms of personnel, the employees’ willingness to qualify is to be expanded and thus the company benefits are to be increased. The actors in the personnel sector should be enabled to recognise changes on the markets and in company processes at an early stage and to develop appropriate qualification measures in comparison with the existing qualifications of the workforce.

To this end, companies will be provided with various analysis methods as tools of the trade, such as job promotion analyses or personnel development programmes. The long-term goal is to enable companies to identify changes in good time and to derive and implement training needs and measures.
