Age, demographic change and the workplace

by on December 6, 2012

TAEN report here the evidence given by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) to the House of Lords Public Service and Demographic Change Select Committee.

The CIPD argue that with 36 per cent of the working population expected to be aged over 50 by 2020, employers should be looking to entice older people to stay in work for as long as possible. Very recent research reports that the number of over 50s expecting to work beyond the state pension age has increased by 43%, from 4.5 million in 2010 to 6.5 million.

One of the challenges is said to be encouraging employers to make small adjustments to working practices or environments to help older workers continue in their jobs with no loss of effectiveness.
