  Study proposes programme to help keep elderly in work

Photo of article One of the biggest challenges facing Europeans is how the number of people able to provide for the ageing population is shrinking. A new study led by the University of Gothenburg in Sweden shows how the situation is further exacerbated by the fact that 25% of managers of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) expect to retire by 2016, resulting in the closure of a company in 1 in 10 cases. The findings, which provide insight into what measures must be implemented to help retain the elderly in the labour market, are an outcome of the BEST AGERS project, supported under the EU's Baltic Sea Region Programme to the tune of EUR 4.4 million.

  EU funds research on work-week, home-life dynamics

Photo of article In today's globalised market, the codes and rules governing the European workplace have been re-evaluated and fine-tuned. Companies have been compelled to rethink their strategies for competing with emerging economies; this affects the way a workforce is managed. One of the strategies that European firms, both large and small, have identified while attempting to adjust to the new pressures of the market, is to extend working times or devise creative work schedules. Though this may provide a slight advantage in boosting turnover, what are the implications for workers and their families, who are obliged to adjust their daily routines so as to adapt to these changes? EUCOWE, an EU-financed project, studied working times in Europe, and examined their social effects on the workforce.
