Retrieve those experimental rules launched in the past years that had designed for the over 50s the possibility of ‘soft exits’ from the labor market with which to guarantee the company a non-traumatic transfer of skills between young and old and avoid the risk of marginalization of older workers. De facto rules that never took off that could be modified by giving space both to the aspirations of a less intense working life and to a mentoring system for young people who enter the world of work. It is the Minister of Labor, Andrea Orlando, during his speech at the EY Italy Outlook Talk entitled “How will our ways of living and working change?” in fact, to outline one of the next steps which the dicastery will be involved in, on the sidelines of the biggest game, still to be played, on the Fornero reform and the modification of the retirement age. The proposal on the minister’s table would in any case have nothing to do even with options such as Quota 100 or other, Orlando immediately clarifies, but rather with the desire to create a mechanism that accompanies a worker to retirement without renouncing his competence and designing him for this role is more “consultative” than active, perhaps “associating after a certain age also a reduction in working hours”. “Many 50-year-olds begin to think about when they will retire, also because at a certain point the job becomes less interesting and the possibility of growth is drastically reduced. One thing that negatively affects the labor market but also from a social and welfare point of view. Beyond the retirement age, therefore, we must work to ensure that until the end day of work the person is fully integrated, motivated and with a possible path “, explains Orlando, recalling how in this sense” they have been experimenting you in recent years soft exit forms, provided for by law, which however have never worked: now we are monitoring the reason for this flop and there are various hypotheses “. Soft outings “used very little”, he repeats reiterating how “instead I believe that this is an area in which to return to work, perhaps associating a reduction in hours after a certain age. This could also help, in some sectors, that transfer of skills that retirement does not allow since, on the contrary, it provides for a dry logic: today I work tomorrow I will stop. This type of mechanism, on the other hand, would allow, in addition to reducing the risk of marginalization in recent years, to transform that job into a more consultative form “.
