- make training more attractive for low-skilled workers and encourage enterprises to keep training them until the end of their careers;
- encourage social partners and pension funds to reduce incentives for early retirement in their second pillar schemes;
- support the action of the Public Employment Service in helping older workers, particularly aged 60-64, find stable jobs;
- improve the targeting of social assistance budgets for the older unemployed to help them back into work;
- encourage social partners to link pay more to experience and performance than age;and
- combat age discrimination (which remains legal in Switzerland, and is quite common.
