"That is why it is so important not to approach changes and innovations with fear or skepticism, but with positive curiosity, and to help shape them."Compared to the USA or asia, germany would otherwise run the risk of losing out.
According to the study, 54 percent of adults in germany feel well prepared for the use of new technologies. 81 percent of employees would take the opportunity for further training if their employer offered them the chance. 69 percent say their employer gives them the opportunity to improve their digital skills outside of working hours.
It is also the responsibility of companies to support their employees through individual learning, said stork. "This is how we can make germany fit for the digital future together."
