    Slovenia has been facing the problematic of ageing of population, having birth rate among the lowest in Europe for a long period of time. Compared to other EU states, the rate of employment of older people is in Slovenia rather low. On the other hand many young people are not successful in finding a job after completing their education. Thus it is not surprising that some consider them a lost or forgotten generation as the state does not pay sufficient attention to the young. Only recently, with increasing unemployment among young Europeans, much of the European money and various measures for stimulating employment are being intended for employing the young. Both trends, the withdrawal of older workers from the labour market and the lack of young workers will in the future lead to a decrease of qualified labour force. The hidden but for a company significant skills and knowledge of the older workers seem to be lost due to the absence of transference of those to the young co-workers. And vice-versa, young workers rarely transfer their “new” technological knowledge and skills to the older generation. More and more states are thus becoming aware of the significance of intergenerational cooperation that is based on intergenerational learning. Such learning enables transferring and exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of work, and solidarity between generations. By transferring knowledge the older generations remain active longer on the labour market, while the young gain a lot with the transferring of knowledge and easily enter the labour market. New methods and approaches are being developed to facilitate and strengthen intergenerational learning with further training in and outside companies. It is thus significant for the employers to recognize the generational differences, to understand them and adjust working processes to enable the employed of different generations successful cooperation within separate teams in companies.
