International Conference: Aging Workforce – Older Workers and Immigrants as New Pillars of Western Economies

Posted: 2/6/2018 (Local Events)

Western population is aging. In 2060, the EU will only have two people of working age for every person aged over 65 – half of today’s figure. In Japan there will be only 1.3 Japanese and in the USA 2.5 Americans of working age on every person over 65.  What actions can we take to increase our odds of having a longer and more satisfying life? How will we manage financing pension and social systems? What is the situation of older people in the labour market? How we can extend working lives and avoid premature retirements? How to equip companies with the right skills and knowledge when attracting, managing, and retaining mature workers? What is the right immigration policy to be beneficial for both the western economies and the immigrants?

Preliminary conference program available here. Working language of the conference is English.
