The paper analyzes the demographic and economic situation in the labor market, gives an assessment of the natural population movement, reveals the demographic aging of the population, which is manifested in the growth of the population of older ages, high economic activity of people in older age groups, which is mainly due to the causes of socio-economic nature. The social and economic factors of the formation of competitiveness, which determine the growth of employment in the older age group: lack of money for current consumption, the ability to communicate with people, the desire to make savings for the future, the desire for financial independence (independence), interest in work, habit, involvement in society. Increasing competitiveness requires the creation of a system of training and retraining of the staff of age groups in the digital economy, which should include the development and implementation of appropriate programs aimed at the active inclusion of the older population in the digital economy, as well as a change in the socio-cultural paradigm of "old age", which creates a perception of older people as a non-productive part of society. The purpose of the article is to systematize and clarify the approaches to the concept of competitiveness of older age groups in the digitalization environment. The main results of the research are reduced to the definition of the spheres of employment of senior groups and specification of the factors of competitiveness of senior age groups' personnel, which allows to identify the main problems of formation and use of senior groups' people in the conditions of digitalization. The study and the results obtained complement the scientific direction with an expanded and integrated approach to addressing the competitiveness of older age groups, which helps to identify key challenges and identify areas for improvement in their use.
