POLET project – A comprehensive business model for employers for active and healthy employee aging

An ageing workforce and sick leave may face a major challenge for each employer and it is thus important to know their characteristics and on the basis of these findings, to develop appropriate management modes of employees in the company.
Following the guidelines of the European Union in the field of active and healthy ageing and solving the problem of the low labour market participation of older employees, as well as high absenteeism of employees, Kovis decided to participate in the POLET project.
The POLET project – “Developing a comprehensive business model for employers for active and healthy ageing of employees”, which takes place in the Eastern Slovenia cohesion region, will take place between April 2019 and May 2022. The POLET project is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Social Fund.
The main objective of the project is to reduce absenteeism from work by 10% in relation to the starting situation.
On the basis of an analysis of the situation in our company, an individualized programme and a plan for the implementation of activities in the field of active and healthy aging, and reducing absenteeism from work have been developed. The range of innovative measures is helpful to the company and serves as an idea when choosing a measure that the company believes can help improve the organizational climate, interpersonal relationships, and long-term preventive care for the effectiveness at work.
Within the POLET project, the employees will be introduced to various topics in the field of health, training, psychosocial aspects of health and work, work organization, and many other topics.
