Intergenerational dialog - changing labor market

  • Location: Innsbruck, ISD-Stadtteiltreff Wilten
  • Date: 27.05.2024, 18:30

The labor market is changing not only as a result of technological progress, but also due to the multifaceted interaction between generations. Although the high demand for labor has seemingly brought the “human factor” back into focus, age discrimination is still an everyday experience. Thinking in terms of “generations” does not help: baby boomers are seen as narrow-minded and far removed from technology, while younger generations are stereotyped as disinterested and primarily leisure-oriented. The talk will focus on the causes and consequences of this discrimination, with the aim of discussing constructive approaches for an inclusive working environment. In this intergenerational dialog, we will discuss strategies for promoting intergenerational coexistence and the opportunities that arise from this. More information may be found here.
