The population is ageing. The ratio between people of working age and those of retirement age is decreasing. One option to combat this is for employees to remain working longer and delay retirement. A proactive company creates a business case analyzing the demographics of the workforce and putting together a continuity plan to maintain the knowledge base. Management prioritizes age management and promotes positive attitudes toward older workers, ensuring there are sufficient resources to create a healthy and safe working environment for all, taking into account individual needs. This allows employees to work for longer, rather than take age-compulsory redundancy.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
