Employability in the face of demographic change – Prospects for the European rail sector

Wednesday, 23 February 2011

The European social partners in the rail sector, CER, EIM and ETF (European Transport Workers’ Federation), have worked on the challenges of the demographic change in the context of a project funded by the European Union. The result is a guide with more than thirty examples of good practices, addressing the issue of demographic change and employability in the European railway companies. These actions centre on the areas of recruitment and education, further education and qualifications, health promotion, and appropriate working conditions for the various life phases.
