Project: Evolution of the physical and psychological capacities in function of the age among the working people

project duration
01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-05
By means of a questionnaire the social stereotypes concerning older employees are mapped. Who (men, women, worker, clerk, …) says what (stereotypes) about who (men, women, worker, clerk, …) is the head question. The age of an older employee is consciously not clarified. The results are checked by an extended study of the scientific literature about physical, physiological and psychosocial capacities. Recommendations about this are spread in the economic world.
