Sofia Investment Agency signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Evergreen Talents 55+ platform.
Evergreen Talents 55+ supports the employment of older adults. The initiative aims to create a sustainable business model with a social cause, uniting job seekers, employers, partners, municipalities, and the state in a single ecosystem.
On behalf of Sofia Municipality, our team supports the initiative. In the context of the economic crisis caused by COVID-19, unemployment, the aging population in our country, Europe, and globally, such initiatives give this demographic group a chance to find a job and be an active participant in the labour market.
People over the age of 55 are a large and growing group with great potential. Their active involvement in the work processes benefits the business, municipalities, the state, and society. The workforce in this age group has strengths such as loyalty, emotional intelligence, appreciation of teamwork, the employer, and remuneration.
Evergreen Talents 55+ focuses on manufacturing and services and works for a change in the employers’ attitude towards people over 55. The organization will provide training for the candidates, help them find a suitable position, issue certificates for qualification, and find employers.
