According to him II Map of Senior Talent 2002, Spain would be in the penultimate position in employability of senior talent. This report has been prepared for Fundación MAPFRE by the International University of La Rioja (UNIR) and the headhunter, Alfonso Jiménez.

The study shows that Only 41.95% of the Spanish population between the ages of 55 and 69 work, far from other countries such as Sweden and Germany, which comfortably exceed employment rates, above 50%. The report contains an x-ray of the senior talent situation of Spain in the labor market comparing it with seven countries of the European Union, with the aim of being able to draw conclusions and offer some recommendations.

Puyol highlighted that “The great labor challenge of the future in most countries is to work longer. In this process Spain needs to make a special effort because it presents a clear comparative delay with the countries where the best practices exist”.

The president of UNIR and expert demographer expressed needs aimed at reversing the current state of the seniors in our country to improve their employability. “The extension of the activity will require a change in legislation and a change of mentality”he claimed.

Analysis in four geographical areas

The Report compares senior talent in seven countries of the four large geographical areas of the European Union: North (Sweden), East (Poland) Center-West (Germany, France) and South (Italy, Portugal and Spain). Among all of them, Spain stands at employment rates of 41.95%, third from the bottom, compared to the most prominent Sweden and Germany, with 61.82% and 56.49% respectively.

Generally speaking, there is a strong concentration of the senior group in the 55-59 age group. From the age of 60 the rates drop significantly and in an outstanding way in the group of 65 to 69 years.

The comparative sample used is significant due to its cultural, geographical proximity and economic weight, also for what it means to encompass a population greater than 70% of the total inhabitants of the EU, made up of the 27 Member States. It is worth noting the use of qualitative and quantitative methodologies, where public data sources are taken into account (Eurostat and the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor-GEM survey), and the support of expert opinions of recognized experience for each European country.

Study structure

The report, divided into four parts, initially speaks of demographic evolution and its impact on the labor market in the aforementioned geographical areas. Thus, the demographic context is a fundamental variable due to the fourfold effect exerted by the birth rate, migration, the composition by sex and the age structure of a population.

However, for Rafael Puyol, the most important parameter is the one that refers to “to the study by someone else of seniors, which represents 80% compared to a fifth of self-employment”maintains.

In this sense, the focus on the employment situation of seniors focuses on the three essential elements of the labor market: activity (available), employment (those who truly work) and unemployment (unemployed).

It is also broken down from the report the female senior employment situationwith lower rates than males in all countries and in each age group, although on the other hand, employment has increased more in recent times among women.

Regarding the analysis of self-employment, the third part of the study addresses the autonomous capacity of seniors when it comes to develop projects, initiatives and entrepreneurship. This has led to growth in senior employment in all countries since 2008.

Of special importance are the good practice policies of companies that try to retain senior talent through a series of instruments, procedures, giving them special working conditions, adaptation to the environment and training. This final fourth part of the document presents examples in each of the seven countries, accompanied by revealing testimonials from executives.

The most discouraging data offered by the researchers refers to the unemployment of the seniors. Except in Germany and Poland, it has increased throughout Europe, despite the growth in activity and employment, with Spain and Italy as the countries with the highest unemployment rates for this group.

Next Generation EU 03

The third edition of the report has already been published “NextGenerationEU Guide, for the industry to better understand and take advantage of its opportunities”. As usual, it has been published by the EAIC (European Association of Innovation Consultants), of which FI Group is a part.

The report, which once again included the participation of the FI Group, explains how each of the 24 European countries distributes the almost 326 billion European aid granted in their National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

The latest update of the report highlights the maximum financial contribution that corresponds to each Member State, calculated taking into account the growth in real GDP in 2020 and the accumulated growth in real GDP in the period 2020-2021.

Most Member States saw their maximum financial contribution in the aid component of their Recovery plans decrease, due to changes in the calculations made in June 2022, based on real GDP growth data. The only countries that saw their funds increased were Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria Y Portugal.

Main updates and news reported by Member States

  • The implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Plans is in full swing: calls have been launched to receive proposals, projects are being evaluated and aid agreements are being signed.
  • Member States have started work on the review of plans, following the decision made on June 30, 2022 on the final distribution of funds; some of the new plans are still being evaluated (for example: more funds in Lithuania to boost energy independence, renewable energy and cybersecurity).
  • The report also highlights the main calls for proposals launched in each of the 24 Member States (for digitization, innovation, circular economy, etc.), both those active right now and those planned soon.
  • Some of the Member States (Finland for example) have already distributed all the funds allocated to them in their Recovery and Resilience Plans.

Alejandro Álvarez, Grants Director at FI Group, as well as a member of the EAIC Board and coordinator of this report, highlights that it is a unique initiative at a European level. “We have been following the development of the Recovery and Resilience Plans since the start of the negotiations and have managed to offer comprehensive information on the opportunities that are emerging across Europe. Building on the success of this pioneering initiative, we are looking to broaden the focus of the report to provide an even more valuable overview of the opportunities for all key players in the industry.” explains Alvarez.

OVHcloud has recently included the option to use Bring Your Own License or BYOL in its portfolio of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions.

The Nutanix users they can now bring their existing Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to dedicated OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud infrastructures, making it easier for them to transition to the cloud. OVHcloud, which recently received the Nutanix EMEA Service Provider of the Year award, continues to expand its offer of Nutanix on OVHcloud solutions with the addition of the BYOL offer to complement the existing pack offer.

Existing Nutanix customers and partners can now bring their Nutanix Cloud Platform licenses to Nutanix-certified High Grade HCI Intel dedicated servers, benefiting from license portability and application migration transparency. Customers’ Nutanix hyper-converged environment (HCI) is pre-installed in just hours and ready to use with their custom infrastructure.

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution enables a faster migration of on-premises applications to the cloud, while benefiting from OVHcloud infrastructures. With a low carbon footprint and best-in-class PUE and WUE indices, the OVHcloud infrastructure stands out for its global sustainability, thanks to a circular group approach that allows for maximum optimization of the server’s life cycle.

User needs

This new offering allows OVHcloud to meet the needs of users, covering seasonal peaks in infrastructure demand and developing disaster recovery plans (DRPs), all while providing a cost-effective solution. Like the Nutanix on OVHcloud bundle offer, the BYOL offer consists of 27 variants of dedicated servers and Nutanix High Grade HCI certified servers based on Intel processors and includes inbound and outbound traffic, helping to improve OPEX for significant savings compared to non-hyperconverged infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

“As a company, we continually demonstrate the power of strong partnerships. OVHcloud already has an excellent understanding of our technology with its existing Nutanix on OVHcloud solution. For this reason, it makes sense for us to expand our relationship to include a BYOL offering.”says Dom Poloniecki, Worldwide Sales Chief of Staff and Head of Sales Strategy & Operations at Nutanix. “The real winners here are our common customers and partners who are looking for cost-effective ways to scale to an OPEX model in the cloud, but who, to date, have not yet made the switch from an on-premises environment. With OVHcloud and Nutanix, they have the best of both worlds.”

The Nutanix on OVHcloud solution is a scalable and ready HCI platform to use that is offered both as a pack and BYOL, and is based on a dedicated Hosted Private Cloud OVHcloud infrastructure certified by Nutanix. It is now available online in EMEA and Canada, with data centers located in Canada, France, Germany and the UK.

hosting

The digitization in small and medium-sized companies it is no longer just a trend, but a necessity. And the first step for those who continue to lag behind is the creation of a website. But where to start? Part of the aid from European funds is destined to the development of this type of tools where, in addition to an innovative design, you will need a good hostingso that everything works perfectly.

The hosting provider: what should you demand?

The hosting provider is something like the home where your website is cared for and protected. Therefore, it must be reliable and secure, but for businesses with less budget, it also cheap. Your digital project must also have a domain, the obtaining of which falls within the responsibilities of this provider. If all these concepts are new to you, don’t worry, here we help you with some tips:

  1. That the hosting is hosted in Spain. This will allow you minimize costs but without having to give up offering your visitors a good user experience. When you have your data in the country, all the traffic you have from here (the vast majority) will enjoy minimal latency, and optimal loading times, they will not have to wait several seconds for the web page to load, and they will not experience very marked delays when interacting with her.
  2. That he Technical support is in Spanish and with 24/7 coverage: If you run a small business or a personal project, you know that work and problems can arise at any time. Having support in your own language and that is available will always help you a lot in your project.
  3. Servers with NVMe SSD drives: this is essential for your project to load faster and for it to offer the level of performance that your users deserve.
  4. Hacking and cyberattack prevention services: essential for your website to be safe and protected.
  5. Flexibility and scalability: The hosting you choose should give you the possibility of adapting it to your needs, and to the changes that occur in your project. If your idea is to grow, it is essential that the hosting do it with you.
  6. Possibility to try it for free: This is important because it will allow you to discover if the hosting you have chosen is really the right one for you, and without you having to spend a penny.

An example of hosting that meets all these requirements is Axarnet which, for a price starting at 2.49 euros, has all the features described above. Also, you can try it for free for a month without having to enter any payment method. It will also allow you to register your domain for free in annual contracts, and you will enjoy a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate at no cost.

In the event that you already have a domain, you can always transfer it to Axarnet hosting and in a very simple way. What are you waiting for to have your own web showcase?
