Everything grey on grey?
Hardly a day goes by when the media do not report about the demographic change and its effects on industry and society. This takes place more or less seriously, sometimes factual, sometimes sensational. For example, a major tabloid newspaper gives the Germans up to the year 2300 or a good 12 generations - then the population will have shrunk to 3 million and the Germans will be as good as extinct ...
This brochure does not look quite so far into the future. And although it also deals with the consequences of the demographic change, the aspects and correlations presented here are much less dramatic than the introductory sentences suggest. The whole point is simply how our world of work - in particular the world of office work - has to be designed so that older employees can also feel at home in it, both now and in the future, remain productive and motivated and can meet the demands
imposed on them.
This brochure may possibly motivate people to subject the entire system of work to a critical analysis and optimise it where necessary. For that is the main message: A workplace optimally designed from ergonomic aspects is also an age and ageing-appropriate workplace.
