The aim of this paper is to analyze the behavior of the Italian companies and the solutions adopted for keeping and reintegrating ageing workers in the labour market, as well as the strategies implemented for their professional enhancement, starting from the results of two INAPP surveys. The first one, is a quantitative survey on the attitude of the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) employers towards the ageing workers; the second one is a qualitative research on age management best practices in the large companies. As a result, emergent trends will be underlined in the great enterprises, with a focus on similarities and differences with respect to the SMEs, in order to individualize a feasible development perspective.
