Join us for the first People & Skills Network of 2019, where we'll be discussing how to get the best out of older workers: recruiting, retaining, and retraining

Demographic trends in the UK show people engaging with work for longer, which has the potential to help ease skills gaps for some businesses. However, even businesses who are actively working towards greater workplace diversity may experience a new and unique set of challenges as they look at attracting, retaining, and utilising older workers – and it is this we want to discuss with you.

  • What workplace challenges are you currently seeing as a result of demographic trends?
  • What are the potential benefits for businesses/sectors of people working for longer?
  • How can businesses best manage the recruitment and integration of older workers?

We will be joined by Patrick Thomson from the Centre for Ageing Better who will discuss the Age-friendly employers programme with a focus on implementation and how to embed evidence and innovation to bring about behaviour change within organisations.
