Work Quality at +55

BeOld LogoKick off meeting of BeOld project was held in Athens on 30th November and 1st December 2017.

The impact of demographic ageing is one of the challenges of the EU nowadays. Populations aged 65 years and over is estimated to increase in Europe from 16% (2010) to 25.6% by 2040, according to Eurostat.

In addition to pension reforms, the European Commission has recommended to the member States the following actions: raise participation of older workers, promoting access to training and stimulating lifelong learning and improving working conditions to provide an attractive, safe and adaptable work environment throughout working life. Also, an intensive focus should be on policies that reflect actions taken in order to ensure employment of older workers.

Despite this recommendations, workers +55 cope with labour market discrimination based on stereotypes, a shortage of training opportunities, the challenge of unemployment and early retirement options.

This is the starting point of BeOLD project, which main objective is to provide both aged workers and RRHH directors the tools for a better management and adaptation of +55 workers to their jobs.
