German Efficiency Applied to Business Services

Shared Services & Outsourcing Woche 2011

BERLIN, Nov. 18, 2011 /CNW/ - Germany is known for efficiency in engineering cars and machinery. But this overshadows the same ingenuity applied to business processes. Front office and back office business services as well as shared services centers have been consistently growing at double digit rates in Germany, a testament to the country's business environment. Germany Trade & Invest will have experts at this year's 'Shared Services & Outsourcing Woche' in Berlin from November 21-24 to share business opportunities in Germany.

"Companies are drawn here to serve the largest language market in Europe. With an outstanding communications infrastructure and low labor fluctuation rates, Germany is attracting international investors who help businesses optimize their processes," said Dr. Josefine Dutschmann, expert on business services at Germany Trade & Invest in Berlin.

The country's qualified, cosmopolitan workforce is a critical factor for business service providers. From the center of Europe, companies can serve the entire European market from one location, with workers able to speak multiple languages. These employees are also loyal to their employers, with turnover rates approximately half the European average.

In some parts of the country like Berlin and the federal states in the east, rental spaces for offices are far lower than the European average. At the same time these locations benefit from Germany's infrastructure, consistently ranked one of the best in the world.

Germany Trade & Invest recently released the new issue of its brochure "Business Services in Germany" to highlight opportunities in the German market. The brochure is available at

Germany Trade & Invest is the foreign trade and inward investment promotion agency of the Federal Republic of Germany.
