07: Workforce Diversity: Living with and Managing Demographic Change

Breakout / Working Group
german language

Supported by Hewlett-Packard and Familie & Beruf Management GmbH
Companies which have grown aware of diversity’s enormous potential are achieving sustainable success. This success is often based on a corporate culture valuing diversity and the special skills of each employee. Which role will age equality and family friendliness play in companies’ competition for the best brains? Which measures will be required for coping with the challenges of an ageing working population, longer working lives, a lack of junior staff and the compatibility of family and work? In this breakout session we will, amongst other things, discuss the opportunities offered by human resource management which takes into account the employees’ different phases of lives.
