Project goals

Our thesis: The major task of any personnel policy in a war for talents is to create a balanced age structure of the workforce. Age-diverse recruitment is a challenge, as many standard recruitment practices and selection criteria are age-related.

Thus, mature(at)eu - Supporting Employers Recruiting and Selecting Mature Aged Persons is directly concerned with providing an integrated support package to Business Leaders, Equal Opportunities Representatives, HRM, Trade Union Officers and Workers' Representatives based on open source e-learning environment and a toolbox of collection of innovative training materials which enable them to introduce age-diverse recruitment policies and practices. The ICT sector serves as pilot sector for content development and testing.

mature(at)eu consists of two Project Phases:
