The theses aim to answer the question of how a trainer of soft skills can support the trainees in an application of what they have learned at the course back in their practice, that is to enhance the transfer of training.

The following part describes four fundamental conditions to transfer as the key areas the trainer should work with to support the transfer. They are discussed from the perspective of psychology and subsequently, the recommendations for trainers' work are drawn. Those recommendations are also the focus of the empirical study. Conducted as expert interviews, it is closely connected to the previous chapter, as it follows the structure of the four conditions to transfer in both the interviews and the data analysis. Yet the experts are also asked to express their view of transfer and what they consider to be the key elements of it. As the research aims to identify a broad spectrum of intervention strategies to support transfer, also the experts are selected to represent a broad spectrum of experienced soft skills trainers.

Kotálová, Nikola ; Šerák, Michal (advisor) ; Baumgartner, František (referee)
This work aims to analyse the realization of age management in organizations in the Czech Republic. The work focuses on the concept of age management, its tools, levels, pillars, demographic changes, workability, and measures of age management in human resource activities. Then follows an empirical survey. This survey aims to analyse age management measures applied by selected organizations in banking and insurance in Prague. This area is selected based on an analysis of examples of good age management practice and research of signatories to the Diversity Charter, in which banking and insurance organizations were well represented. The work is based on the assumption that if an organization deals with diversity, it is very likely, that it could also deal with diversity based on age. The empirical survey is realized in the form of interviews with personnel workers. The evaluation is based on a comparison of age management measures in selected organizations in banking and insurance with the already analysed principles and recommendations of the theoretical concept of age management.
