The study “Employment effects motor vehicle retail, repair and aftermarket trades” looks at the effects of vehicle electrification and digitalization and of the redesign of business processes on employment structures in the automotive trade. Changes in sales and after-sales are analyzed, effects on job profiles and employment in Baden-Württemberg are evaluated, and the automotive trade and its stakeholders are supported in finding their places and are enabled to determine appropriate measures through recommendations for actions. The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO and the Institut für Automobilwirtschaft ifa (Institute of Automotive Business) are preparing the study on behalf of e-mobil BW. The project is funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism Baden-Württemberg, Verband des Kraftfahrzeuggewerbes Baden-Württemberg e.V. (Association of the Motor Vehicle Trade in Baden-Württemberg), and the Baden-Württemberg metal workers union IG Metall.
