Older employees – an important resource for businesses

PowerMEM© is an electronic reference work developed by Swissmem and experienced HR managers at Swissmem’s member companies. It includes numerous implementation proposals and best practice examples on the topics of basic approach, knowledge, health and work. PowerMEM© offers practical assistance to help businesses retain skilled workers and introduce the necessary demographic management framework.

The knowledge and experience of older employees are an important element in a company’s success. To ensure that the potential represented by older employees can be fully utilized and their knowledge passed along, action is needed at several levels. With its PowerMEM© toolbox, Swissmem offers practical assistance in this area. The field of action is based on three pillars.

The three pillars of the PowerMEM© toolbox

1. Best practices

The “Older employees in industry” working group has compiled a number of best practices from the “Employees aged 50+” field and developed recommendations for action for Swissmem’s member companies.

2. Horizontal career

Older employees often possess know-how that has been acquired over decades. Mixed-age teams help to ensure that this knowledge is passed on. Moreover, work should be organized in such a way as to enable horizontal professional development paths to be pursued as an alternative to the customary hierarchical and vertical career paths.

3. Health management

Workplace health management is a key instrument in maintaining a company's competitiveness. It makes a significant contribution to keeping employees healthy and productive in the medium to long term.
