Silver



Description

Europe faces an ageing population, which impacts directly the labour market composition and dynamics. In 2000, 40% of the total population from 55 to 64 years were active in the labour market. In 2019, this same indicator rose to 63%. (from EUROSTAT database).


According to the European Commission, between 2016 and 2060, it is estimated that the working age population (15 to 64) in the EU will decline by 11.6%.


According to the European Commission, between 2016 and 2060, it is estimated that the working age population (15 to 64) in the EU will decline by 11.6%.


In other words, the European labour market is becoming older and may start shrinking in the upcoming decades. This scenario imposes many risks to our social systems, since a smaller labour force may not provide for the needs of an ageing population.


SILVER project aims to create a coordinated response for the promotion of a career in the third age, that addresses a two-fold ambition:


From one side, managers, HR and other interested professionals are given awareness, strategies and learning tools to a structured way to contribute to career extension or preparation of retirement, enhancing their readiness to support older workers; From another side, older workers themselves are aware of challenges of ageing and empowered for an active ageing within the workplace, either to keep working for longer or to support a smooth transition to retirement.



Output

This project aims to create a coordinated response for the promotion of a career in the third age, integrating the needs of both groups: employers and workers.


Specific objectives are:


- Identify promising practices & work methodologies on active ageing in the workplace,by sounding old people themselves and HR departments


- Raise awareness on organisations from different sectors (public, private, non-profit) about their practices & initiatives towards an age-friendly workplace and the improvements needed


- Promote self-awareness on older workers about their sense of preparation and acceptance for retirement



Targets

The target groups of InALMH are:

  • Employers (managers and HR professionals)

  • Workers +50

  • Trainers/Educators
