Research Consortium on Older Workers

The number of older persons those aged 60 years or over is expected to more than double by 2050 to 2.1 billion, so organisations want be prepared to respond to this demographic shift.

With people living and therefore working for longer, the Research Consortium provides organisations an opportunity to dispel myths and assumptions about older workers and discover how to organise roles, careers and remuneration so older workers can be their very best selves.

Some of the challenges we will explore in the Consortium include:

  • How prevalent are stereotypes around older workers in our organisation, and how does this impact the way people progress or the investments we make in their development?

  • How will changing career expectations from older workers impact pay and benefits in our organisation?

  • Do we have a way to engage older workers in an advisory or project-based role?

  • Do we have a culture and processes that allow us to attract experienced hires?
