There are two approaches to age management at Abengoa. Firstly, Abengoa has HR practices and policies that promote the employability and mobility of all workers - although these policies apply to the whole workforce, regardless of age. These policies enable employees to remain in the job market and also help to extend their working life. Secondly, the organisation has specific age management policies including partial retirement policies. A résumé is available.
