Lifelong learning is key success factor

Demographic change creates new challenges for many global corporations in the industrialized West, as there will be a higher proportion of older employees in the future. That’s why it is more important than ever not only to retain older employees, but also to integrate them and to provide continuous training. For global companies such as BASF with more than 110,000 employees, lifelong learning becomes a strategic success factor. Professor Ursula M. Staudinger explains in a recent interview with BASF what human resource development for all age groups should pay particular attention to.
