- This project from the Endesa Foundation in collaboration with the máshumano Foundation improves employability and generates work opportunities for professionals aged over 50
- In Spain, there are over one million unemployed seniors, who are considered to be a marginalised group
Endesa Foundation, in collaboration with the máshumano Foundation, continues working to offer people aged over 50 the best training and employment through their SAVIA platform, which was presented last April. This social project was founded with the intention of helping the more than one million unemployed people aged over 50 that have become a marginalised group.
There are currently more than 80 collaborators involved in this project and the objective of SAVIA is to continue establishing and expanding this network with renowned organizations through agreements. For this reason, ever since this project started, meetings have been held with the current collaborators in order to analyse tools and resources that are both available in the digital environment and specially designed for users of the platform, and to evaluate new agreements that continue helping senior professionals find new job alternatives.
All resources and tools available at SAVIA may be consulted by web users free of charge. They are organised around the phases of the SAVIA Way. In the first phase, users will find tools for self-awareness, coaching and for fine tuning their CV. The next step features resources for competencies and skills, followed by training. Users can also consult resources about employment, entrepreneurship and other forms of collaboration, as well as tools to create and grow our contact networks.
In this regard, it is worth pointing out the great interest and motivation of all collaborators to provide, among others, exclusive in-person and online training workshops and special free activities for the seniors registered at SAVIA.
In the words of Carlos Gómez-Múgica, General Director of the ENDESA Foundation: “Thanks to the more than 80 collaborators who make SAVIA possible, our nearly 9,000 users can benefit from tools designed for them that allow them to find real opportunities to join the job market.”
