Active aging and digitization

Sustainable success factor for the future: Age-appropriate and digital working environments

Demographic and digital change are presenting the world of work with new challenges. Aging workforces, retirement waves and knowledge retention in the company require long-term solutions from executives and HR departments in order to enable successful succession planning and counteract the shortage of skilled workers. It is important here to keep an eye on the different needs of the generations and the life phases of the employees and to take them into account in order to be able to deploy, train and further train people accordingly and keep them productive in the company. 

The Active Aging and Digitization business area develops individual solutions together with companies and employees in order to implement sustainable generation management in the context of digitization and to design an age-appropriate working environment.



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


Target group

We work together with employees and companies to implement age-appropriate solutions in the working world in a sustainable manner.
