First phase: mapping out examples of best practices at enterprise level in all 27 Member States. This includes desk research and interviews to be conducted with enterprises and face-to-face interviews. A background paper will be produced to be used during the second phase.
Second phase: organization of an EU-level conference in Brussels on Thursday 27 September 2012, bringing together 70 participants including national employers’ social partner representatives, enterprise representatives together with guest experts. A selection of concrete case studies will be presented in order to compare and discuss the different employers’ initiatives on active ageing.
Third and final phase: a synthesis will be prepared based on the outcomes of the EU-level conference and from the overall findings for the project. The document will be discussed and finalized with the partners and will be disseminated and promoted.
Update: The final synthesis of the European employers project on age management policies in enterprises in Europe, was presented in December 2012 in Cyprus. The paper, “Employers’ practices for Active Ageing”, may be downloaded here.
