Demographic changes will continue to see populations across Europe and the world getting older, making an older workforce’s contribution to the labour market both valuable and imperative. Currently there are a number of barriers to paid employment for older workers. This document aims to highlight the benefits for businesses of recruiting and retaining older workers with the aim being to achieve an age diverse workforce. In each of the sections affected by age management (recruitment, retention, retirement), the document outlines the contribution that older workers bring to the company or organisation and provides examples of good practice in age management.
