Conference "Families Undertake the Future"

The conference deals with future questions of modern HR Management for medium-sized and family-owned businesses.

Medium-sized and family-owned companies are considered the backbone of the German economy. Current research has shown that employment rates have grown but at the same time the competition for small- and medium-sized firms has increased due to demographic changes.

More than ever it is important for companies to offer attractive job positions, to enthuse applicants and to retain employees and develop their qualifications. Enough reason for the IMF to deal with future questions of modern HR Management in their first conference “Families Undertake the Future”.


As a participant, you can look forward to the following topics:

  • Keynote on the thinking and expectations of the younger generation – Dr. Thomas Gensicke, generation researcher and co-author of the 17 Shell Jugendstudie 2015
  • Seven round tables under the moderation of renowned experts on topics such as incentive schemes, HR policy, personnel selection or employer attractiveness
  • Insights into the current research – Prof. Dr. Jürgen Weibler, FernUniversität Hagen, author as well as the founder of leadership-insiders
  • Specialist presentations on the challenges of leadership in the digital age
