about this e-guide

Throughout Europe, the proportion of older people in the population is growing, people have to work longer, and the average age of workers is increasing. This e-guide provides practical information, tips and examples related to the ageing of the workforce and the opportunities it brings along.

The content of the e-guide has been tailored to four different audiences: employers, workers, HR managers and OSH professionals (including, for the purpose of this e-guide, workers’ representatives, health and safety representatives and labour inspectors). Throughout the e-guide it is possible to switch between profiles.
