T-Mobile HR manager confirmed that age management is an emerging concept in the Czech Republic in general and in the company’s HR policy in particular. Czech firms have not developed age management measures in greater extent due to the excess of labour force supply over demand. In addition, early retirement has been consistently used in the Czech Republic as a way to manage the workforce. However, the concept of age management has gained prominence in recent times, due to the demographic development of Czech society and the expected age structure of companies’ employees.
