Managing Older Employees In A Long-Lived Society
Introduction: Effective management of older employees is a dynamic process that needs to be adapted to the needs of the modern world as well as the needs of organizations and employees. The physiological, psychological and motivational state of older employees is especially important. At both the social and organizational level, it is necessary to plan and implement the extension of the work activity of older employees, as a long-lived society already shows a shortage of the working population. Methods: The research is based on a quantitative research approach. In the non-random sample, we included 482 over 55 years of age. Data were collected using a structured survey questionnaire, and hypotheses were tested by t-test, correlation and regression analysis. Results: Older people are satisfied with the adjustments in the labor market, especially with the working conditions and the harmonization of the workplace and processes with their abilities and capabilities. We find that there is a link between the health, financial and material condition of older people and their satisfaction with adjustments in the labor market. Conclusions: The results of the research confirm the importance of an appropriate working environment for prolonging the work activity of older people who are willing to extend their work activity in such a working environment that has flexible working hours and space, appropriate working conditions, adapted jobs and processes. and creates intergenerational synergies. The most effective management models for older employees are those that focus on the needs of older employees.
