Horsens Kommune

Winner: AARP International Innovative Employer Award

In some of the schools, a special mentoring program has been set up as a result of the “Good Working Life” project. The program provides for the transfer of knowledge from experienced older teachers to their younger counterparts. Each new teacher in these schools is assigned a mentor who guides the young teacher towards personal and professional development. The aim of the mentoring program is to promote a work culture characterized by greater understanding and mutual respect between younger and older workers. In addition, a greater focus has been placed on establishing work teams involving both younger and older teachers in order to improve cooperation between the different age groups.

Miscellaneous: The initiative for older workers in the Municipality of Horsens has meant that the number of teachers above the age of 60 years has doubled in the last six years. In May 2000, 4.1 percent of teachers in Horsens were over the age of 60 years. However, in May 2006, this figure was 8.3 percent.
