“How to preserve the employment of seniors in your company”
France is one of the European Union countries that lags behind in terms of employment for seniors. Despite a retirement system that requires us to work longer, individuals over the age of 55 face difficulties in an increasingly specialized and competitive job market.
However, in recent years, France and the entire European Union have been facing the challenge of population aging and a decline in the active population.
