Europe: Mature@eu Recuriting Project Opens Website

The European Union Leonardo Da Vinci project website mature@eu is up and running. The project is coordinated by the Vienna based ZSI (Center for Social Innovation) and aims at supporting HR Managers to recruit and retain older employees through developing effective age neutral personnel policies.

The website holds a lot of useful information and it will be constantly updated as the project "matures". The link-list refers to a broad range of organisations in several countries, who have been engaged in supporting older employees and have valuable information and examples of good practice. In addition, a toolbox will be available, which will facilitate HR and employee representatives to promote a change in attitudes and practice towards the recruitment of older professionals and the perception of age stereotypes.
