Learning through Innovative management concepts to ensure transfer of Knowledge of Elderly people
Start date: Oct 1, 2011,

The project is intended to deepen a key issue of the European knowledge society: the inclusion of the ageing workforce which is an important priority of the European social agenda. The project aims at combating age barriers in employment and promoting the adaptability of the older workforce to the changing business and social environment. Its main scope is to develop innovative age management concepts into business practices in order to minimise the impact of age barriers and age discriminatory approaches in job recruitment and training, to activate and better use the capacities of aged personnel, and thus to develop and promote pro-active age management business concepts. The goal is to gain the participation, performance and productivity of the ageing work force by promoting their participation in training initiatives, by increasing confidence and motivation and helping the 50+ re-engage in learning. At the same time employers are sensitised to the benefit they can earn from ‘pushing’ their older workers into training. In order to fulfil the above mentioned objectives the project will primarily analyse ageing and employment trends, as well as the employability of the aged workforce in correlation to specific social characteristics such as religion and immigrants. Aiming at promoting employment opportunities for older workers and enhancing their activation to seize these opportunities, the project will develop training seminars which will ensure the updating of the aged workforce skills and help them enrich their employability perspectives by using ICT tools. The definition of the employment opportunities in the area of interest for the aged workforce will indicate the most appropriate sectors for the aged workforce in order for them to disclose and better use their experience and knowledge. The business reorganisation in the HR sector encompassing age management concepts for optimising the adaptation of human resources in the work processes will be achieved.
