AGE DIVERSITY IN COMPANIES

 

Knowledge Transfer. Intergenerational  Corporation, Demographic Challenges.

On 16 October 2019 we organised a convention on demographic change at the Hotel Savoyen in Vienna. At that time we had two highly successful years to look back on:

100

consultants

8.600

informed companies

1.500

advised companies

340.000

employees reached

 OUR GOAL:

Knowledge transfer.
Intergenerational cooperation.
Demographic challenges.

 

Change happens when people come together: Demographic Consulting’s convention was the place to exchange ideas, to meet others and to find solutions together.

We want to promote employability, recognise demographic change and use its potential to our advantage over the long term.

 

 

 

All of us participating have many years’ varied experience in designing work for older colleagues and multigenerational management. And many of us have contributed to the development and implementation of tools and projects in this regard.”

 

– Programme manager Alexandra Weilhartner in her opening address

Demographic Consulting is multigenerational consulting!

Elephants are known to become very old and very wise. The OLD stay in the herd with the young. When water becomes scarce, the OLD will remember more watering holes than the YOUNG. When they find water, the calves are allowed to quench their thirst first. The pace is such that older elephants can keep up with the younger animals. When an elephant comes to the end of its life, the herd will stay with it during its final moments.”

Thank you to Dr Rosemarie Kurz for this fitting parable.

At age 84, Dr Kurz was our eldest convention participant.
