Er en alder over 50 en hindring for at få arbejde i dagens arbejdsmarked?

Jeg vil starte med at henvise til et debatoplæg udgivet på www.business.dk, hvor Liselotte Lyngsø skriver en spændende artikel med overskriften "Har du lyst til at arbejde?".

Følgende er mit input til dette.

Vi er i en overgangsfase, hvor aldersfikseringen langsomt glider i baggrunden og afløses af fokus på personlig kompetence og egnethed til at fungere i moderne organisatoriske systemer.
Jeg er selv 46 og sidder i en ledende stilling med stort personaleansvar. Alder hos en jobansøger er ikke noget jeg bekymre mig om, men personens evne til at fungere i flere specifikke organisatoriske sammenhæng er afgørende for min bedømmelse.
Det reelle problem er, at de nuværende screenings- og interviewmetoder ikke kan afdække de sociale netværkskompetencer hos en kandidat, men primært ser på dennes resultatkompetencer (hvad har du præsteret og opnået) og personlighed uden at kunne koble dette med de reelle behov for at kunne fungere i en organisation baseret på mange og komplekse sociale netværksrelationer og stadig vekslende arbejdsopgaver og tilknytningsforhold.

  1. hej Lars,

    Ja - for langt de fleste omkring / over 50 kommer aldrig så langt, at de overhovedet får mulighed for at tale om nævnte punkter.

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
