Yhteenveto

According to the head of the HR department, age management is a relatively recent concept in the Czech Republic. However, although the concept is still developing, the majority of HR officers in Czech organisations have already introduced age management measures to some extent into their practices. In the private sector in general, age management practices are less prevalent, often due to an excess of labour force supply over demand. However, in the media sector including TV production and broadcasting there is a shortage of qualified and experienced workers. This is particularly the case in technical and non-technical positions such as cameramen, editors and technicians. These highly skilled and specialised roles are often filled by older workers over 50 years of age. A résumé is available.
