In turn, employees frequently change jobs in order to increase wages.


German model involves long-term and stable relationship of employer and employee. It is very important personal growth, continuous improvement of professional skills: the key to success in the whole company. Quite often, employees in German companies have worked for 30 years in one place, even change jobs often.
