“Ageing, working and living” training program - the pilot experience in France, Romania and Slovenia
The third main result of the Silver project was the design of a training curriculum for managers and HR professionals with the goal of an active aging style and retirement for senior employees. The training programme is structured in three modules as follows:
MODULE I - What is needed to create an age friendly workplace
MODULE II–Senior employees 55+:Characteristics and the specifics
MODULE III – What is needed to design a smooth transition to retirement
In France, the pilot was conducted by Afeji.
The 13 participants were mostly Directors of socio-medical establishments, Heads of services and HR professionals. All participants appreciated the Silver training and the feedback questionnaires were very positive.
The piloting in Romania was conducted by the European Association for Social Innovation and was structured in two online sessions. The 12 participants were HR professors & students, HR professionals, NGO staff.
The training sessions were well received by the participants, who appreciated the SILVER initiative and expressed their interest in finding out more about the project’s materials and results.
In Slovenia, the pilot was conducted by CIK Trebnje with 17 managers and HR professionals from business and healthcare. All the participants were very satisfied with the theme of the Silver event, as they found it very relevant and useful. Participants really liked the way we presented the theory through practical exercises,
examples- they liked the fact that most of the time was dedicated to practical work.
