How everyone in the company can benefit from their older employees.

The generational advantage is obvious

Older employees can be of enormous benefit to any company. Whether long-standing customer relationships, useful networks, practical experience, social skills, the list of assets is long. Even more so as the baby boomer generation approaches retirement and a gap opens in qualified, committed workers. Keeping employees in the company longer pays off.

An initiative of the European Union

The European Union, through its Erasmus+ funded program, has developed a project with practical concepts and concrete measures on how companies can support and efficiently retain older workers. This program is currently running in 5 European countries. ASEP – AUSTRIAN SENIOR EXPERTS POOL has been commissioned with the implementation for Austria.

The project procedure

This pilot project is designed for a duration of 12 months and will be individually adapted to the needs of the company.
