In the next 5 years more than 1,000 workers will retire each year in the industrial sector of l’Hospitalet de Llobregat

On April 12, Oriol Homs and Joan Antoni Serra, presented the results of the study: Replacement of workers, by retirement, in the companies of l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, carried out by notus-asr.

The conclusions of the study carried out in the second biggest city of Catalonia point to the opportunity for renewal of the active population, by the acceleration of the retirement processes of the workers and of the people who have majority ownership of the small businesses of the municipality. This would provide an opportunity for a more educated workforce and facilitate the relocation of employees or transfer to nearby companies with a greater capacity for innovation and competitiveness.

It has been detected that planning for the labour replacement process linked to retirement is the best formula to renew the qualifications of the workforce.
