Age and productivity

A doctorate thesis investigates the connections between an ageing population, innovation and the need to update

 

The company cannot be dissociated from its social and territorial context. It is a statement that applies to all aspects linked to production, but that is often not fully grasped. The fact that a production system is inserted in a particular social context for instance also affects the quality of work from the point of view of the demographic composition, and hence the ability to keep up with technological progress. An important aspect of corporate culture, the relationship between innovation and an ageing population of workers is the subject studied by Corrado Polli in his Doctorate Thesis at the School of Statistical Sciences at La Sapienza University in Rome.

“Ageing, productivity and structural changes in the labour market: the role of training” addresses technological progress, an ageing population and the circumstances that lead to losing work. Polli prepares the elements of his investigation in an orderly fashion, starting with an analysis of the demographic situation and then moving on to the technological components of the evolution of society and production (but not just manufacturing). The disconnection between technologies and the ability of workers is illustrated through an investigation into the productivity of the latter. Particular attention, lastly, is dedicated to the situation of workers over 50 – in the majority of cases with low qualifications – in comparison with the different knowledge demands of the past and common today in most companies.

Polli’s general indication on conclusion of his work aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of specific training in relation to age, education and work.A mechanism that has as its objective that of ensuring on the one hand good productivity and, on the other, containing the growth of difficult to manage technological unemployment. Aside from all this, then, the research by Corrado Polli is further proof of the complexity of a constantly evolving corporate culture which must focus on men.
