Course objectives

This course will focus on life-course management concept and practices in work organizations comprising not only organizational level activities, such as top management, HR-policy and line-management practices, but also individual level activities, such as peer-support groups, self-help tools and work ability coaching.

The purpose of the course is to provide participants clear insights of current empirical evidence of effectiveness of organizational and individual level activities in supporting longer and better working careers among employees with all ages. Participants will gain understanding of theoretical background concepts and their practical application in form of concrete tools for work organizations as part of life-course management practices.

Subject background

Demographic change is one of the ongoing mega trends in the world, and especially in Europe. This means decreasing birth rate together with increasing life expectancy resulting in increasingly ageing workforce with simultaneous shortage of young entry-level workers. Longer working careers are called for but vast majority of employers are lacking effective tools in supporting workers of different ages. According to EU-OSHA only 7% of small enterprises and 19% of large enterprises are aware of age-friendly policies.

Best practices in age management embrace organizational level actions, such as age-friendly HR-policy together with individual level career management approach, such as enhancing employees’ preparedness to manage their own career (e.g., skills, work ability and employ-ability). This comprehensive approach requires more resources and know-how of organizational actors but will yield greater benefits than narrower one measure approaches alone.
