Longer careers with the job life cyle model
Longer careers with the job life cycle model – a guide to designing an age plan has now been published in English.
The guide represents an age plan model that takes
into consideration all age groups (not only older employees), and provides
information for organisations to develop their own age plan.
There are seven central areas included in a workplace age plan:
- career-planning and extending careers
- managing competence and
- flexible working hours
- re-defining a job
- health assessment it the workplace and
- promoting healthy habits and life management.
Age management is a key part of good management and, above all, the management of work ability and occupational well-being.
A working group of social partners has
prepared the Job Life Cycle Model. The model is based on the social partners’ agreement of the extension of
work careers (2012) and their framework agreement (2011). The translation of this publication has been funded in part by the Department for Occupational Safety and Health of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.
The guide is
freely available to everyone for use and redistribution. Please find it
