Course objectives

The aim of the course is to review the current knowledge and theoretical framework in the life course approach of age management, and to transfer this understanding to the pragmatic level of human resource policy and leadership of work organizations. Another goal is to provide feasible solutions and tools for organizations of various sizes and sectors.

Immediately after the Age Management course, there will be an additional workshop day for PhD students (8-9 October). This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for PhD students to share their experiences and challenges with peers, and to build vital international networks. During the workshop each PhD student will present their work in progress and have the opportunity to attend shared data sessions, in which chosen samples of data are discussed and jointly analyzed.

Subject background

Demographic changes, increased life-expectancy and low fertility rates continue to diminish the workforce but to simultaneously increase age and life course diversity. It is typical for even three or four generations to work together. As a consequence, acknowledging the needs and strengths of workers at various stages of the work life course, and facilitating mutual understanding and collaboration will be a key success factor forcompanies and work organizations in the future.
