SILVA, Teresa; VELOSO, Ana  e  SILVA, Isabel Soares. Age, employment and human resources management: a study on Portuguese SME. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.4, pp. 218-225. ISSN 1984-6657.

As in Europe, Portugal is aging rapidly and markedly, with implications for the labor market and human resource management. Globalization, competitiveness, and job rarefaction are contributing to a more selective employment market. Older employees seem to be more affected by this new employment market reality, characterized by weak employability and long-term unemployment. Our intent here is to understand the variables involved in the employability of employees over 40 years old, and the role of organizations and employees/unemployed in the process of "employability". An exploratory study was conducted with SMEs in the North of Portugal, involving both unemployed individuals and human resources managers. We analyzed the perceptions of the unemployed individuals over 40 about their situation, their personal resources, and resolution strategies adopted. From the companies' viewpoint, we explored their perceptions about workers over the age of 40 and characterized the management of these workers.
