Active ageing and age management to favor intergenerational relations in workplaces

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

While it needs to be implemented at the level of the organization, age management may also be promoted through legislation or public policy for the ageing workforce as a whole, in order to strengthen labour market integration, increase or sustain productivity and improve the quality of work environment. The two approaches should be seen as mutually reinforcing, rather than as independent of each other. Good practice in age management and, in particular, those favoring intergenerational relations, are the most important precondition for a substantial increase in the labour force participation of older workers (but not only – see generational contract); its benefits can be felt all round, for public authorities, for employees and for the organization. This paper aims to develop a better understanding of how answers to demographic challenges may be translated into both national policies and firms practices, presenting two country case and some good practices.
