Germany’s social market economy is the largest in Europe. It is the fourth largest national economy by nominal GDP in the world. After a ten-year growth period, the GDP fell slightly during 2020 due to the pandemic. However, economists are sure that the economy will not just revive but thrive in a short span.
With a strong focus on exports and heavy investment in research and development the job market in Germany is and will continue to be a haven for skilled workers. Several top brands have their home in Germany. Newly generated jobs, as well as skilled replacements for those who move on to other jobs or retire, will mean opportunities for job seekers. The aging population results in not just a shortage of skilled workers but also a great demand for healthcare professionals including nurses and caregivers.
To help businesses during the pandemic slump the government has put in place a system where employees can work reduced hours and the company pays them for the hours worked. The government pays the employee 60% to 67% of the rest of the salary. This ensures that businesses do not lose skilled employees at times when the business is low. This also enables the economy to recover and rebuild itself faster.
