Ageing workforce

Printer-friendly version

The retention of older workers in employment is an important objective not only of labour market policies but also for social protection budgets. The Foundation has gathered and analysed cases of good practice in age management, designed to improve job opportunities and working conditions for older workers. Each case study describes how the organisation approached the issue and what the results were in the medium to long term.

The case studies collected cover several countries, sectors and type of organisation, and document good practice in relation to such issues as recruitment, training and development, flexible working, health, ergonomics etc. The cases can be searched using the form below.
