Workers over 55 are currently in a labor market that discriminates against them based on stereotypes and in which they have to face the reduction of training opportunities, the challenges of unemployment and early retirement options. The main objective of the project is to provide both workers and managers of human resources and management with the necessary tools for better management and adaptation of workers over 55 years of age in the workplace.
