Active Aging & Digitization

Sustainable success factor for the future: generation management and digital working environments

Demographic and digital change are presenting the world of work with new challenges. Aging workforces, waves of retirement and the retention of knowledge in the company require long-term solutions from managers and HR departments in order to enable successful succession planning and counteract the labor shortage. It is crucial to actively shape the change and successfully use the strengths of your company and your employees. 

The connection between generations in the company is a key to sustainable success. With appropriate generation management, you keep an eye on the needs and life phases of your employees and can employ people according to their skills, train them and keep them productive in the company.  

 

The advice provided by our Active Aging & Digitalization business area includes the development of strategies that promote effective collaboration between generations, enable knowledge exchange and increase innovative strength. With generation management, we support you in using the potential and diversity of your workforce, including in the context of digitalization. 

 

Focus 

Our active aging and digitization projects focus on leadership, HR management, qualification and skills management. 

 

target audience 

We work with employees and companies to implement age- and generation-appropriate and digital solutions for the world of work in a sustainable manner.

Demographics advice Digi +

The Digi+ demography consultancy is a free consulting project for companies and their employees in Austria. We support companies in dealing with the challenges posed by demographic change, with digital transformation, maintaining employment and creating life-stage-oriented and age-appropriate jobs.

Our offer

Our working world has changed significantly in recent years. Workplaces must be adapted to digital processes; the demands placed on companies and their employees are becoming increasingly diverse. As the baby boomer generation approaches retirement, we must adapt our working world so that people can be kept in employment not only longer but also productively.

The demographic consultancy Digi+ supports this

  • Adapting leadership and work processes in an age-appropriate manner and in line with digital change,
  • to use older employees in particular according to their potential,
  • to promote (digital) skills and lifelong learning among employees,
  • and establish sustainable knowledge management in the company.

The advice is individual and tailored to each company. With a team of around 50 consultants, we offer everything from a single source: location assessment and industry comparison, in-depth analyzes of the workforce and age structure, development of measures and support of implementation using our toolbox. We also offer regional events and networking opportunities for companies, information and referrals to other funding and offers.

target group

The Digi+ demography consultancy is aimed at all Austrian companies (with the exception of Burgenland), regardless of industry and size.
