Managing an Ageing Workforce
Managing an Ageing Workforce: Supporting Staff and Future-Proofing your Business
19th March 2020 | Central London
in partnership with the Centre for Ageing Better
With the ageing population increasing, and remaining in work, learning how to effectively support aging staff is key to future-proofing your business and avoiding a skills gap. Between the ages of 50 and 64, employment levels drop by a drastic 45%. Early exit from the workforce is often involuntary, however, due to inadequate adjustments, redundancy and age bias.
There are simple yet effective measures that must be taken by businesses to better manage their ageing demographic. Open and early conversations around changing needs and retirement, as well cultural adjustments and flexible working arrangements, can help to ensure that employees’ roles evolve and adapt as they age. This way, vital skills and experience remain within and accessible to your business.
Our upcoming Managing an Ageing Workforce event will address the business case for effective age management, and examine effective measures in recruiting, retaining and retraining older employees. Best practice in age management and structural adaptation will be discussed, and you will come away with an understanding of the cultural and data-driven measures necessary to adapt your business to changing demographics in the years to come.
