Description of the action
Establishment of a diversified network of trainers ensuring in particular a "diversity of ages" with young people of generation Y and seniors. Diversity training courses based on the DISC tool are organised by the trainers. This tool makes it possible to demonstrate the functioning of the different personalities as well as the diversity of the existing teams in order to improve potential conflict situations, particularly with regard to age.
Workforce management policies over the past 30 years have, for a variety of economic and social reasons, focused on the early departure of workers. Early retirement has become the norm in many companies in Luxembourg. As a result, companies have disinvested in the human resources management of their "ageing" workers, sometimes as early as their forties (reduction or cessation of training, opportunities for internal mobility, incentives, etc.). This has had the effect of de-skilling and de-motivating some older workers.
Each age group has its strengths and weaknesses, and a staff with a diversity of ages will be better able to meet the different demands faced by today's organizations. Exchanging experiences, world views, professional and extra-professional knowledge within a company with a diverse workforce is more likely to lead to overall company profitability and adaptation to different internal and external contexts.
