ILCUK issues a Provocation: Extending Working Lives

by on May 16, 2013

The International Longevity Centre UK, supported by funds from NESTA, has just published a Provocation which calls for the extension of working lives.

ILCUK argues that this extension is necessary to minimise the economic impacts of ageing caused by raising the State Pension Age. This is because of the current gap between when people are actually retiring and reaching SPA. The key actions that ILCUK calls for are:

  • We must all act to change our attitudes to retirement and working longer
  • Employers must take the initiative in leading innovation (and it provides a number of case studies involving e.g. BMW, Sainsburys and Ernst & Young)
  • Older workers’ attitudes and aspirations must shape the agenda
  • There is a need for a strategic approach, with integration of policy to support older workers with other areas, such as health, pensions and education

A summary of the Provocation is here on the ILCUK website from where a copy can also be downloaded.
