SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, July 12, 2018 – The Seoul 50 Plus Foundation will cooperate with the Ministry of Employment and Labor, the Hyundai Motor Group, and social enterprise Sang Sang Woori to draw up a new sustainable employment model for 50+ generations, and to implement the “Good Job 5060” project to help them find jobs especially at social enterprises and social venture companies.
The Good Job 5060 project is a project that helps middle-aged citizens better understand about their social values and develop their core business capacities beyond finding jobs.
Through this project, the Foundation will select nearly 200 people every year for five years until 2022 to provide six-week workshops and education programs for 50+ generations to increase their capacities, and three-month training sessions and mentoring services for their reemployment or starting their own businesses.
Meanwhile, the Seoul Metropolitan Government will match them to 500-strong social enterprises and social ventures that need professional manpower for the next five years.
To raise public awareness of the project, the Seoul 50 Plus Foundation held the project’s launching ceremony, July 10, at 50 Plus West Campus.
The Seoul 50 Plus Foundation will select the project participants, run workshops, and also select about ten professionals, who have completed the social and economic courses, as “50+ Supporters.”
The Ministry of Employment and Labor will promote diverse support measures for 50-60 generations, and the Hyundai Motor Group provides funds for social participation and job creation projects. Finally, Sang Ssang Woori, a social entrepreneur, is in charge of educating core competency and social enterprise employment matching.
