Join Business in the Community and the Public Health team from Bedfordshire and Luton to share best practice to support your business in managing a healthy ageing workforce.

The current economic downturn is camouflaging a number of implications for the UK skills challenge which relate to emerging labour market demographic changes.  It is predicted that UK employers will need to fill an estimated 13.5 million job vacancies in the next ten years, but only 7 million young people will leave school and college over this period.  Migration alone will not fill this gap - it is important that employers act to safeguard their longer-term economic success by looking at older employees in their existing workforce more openly and creatively.

Hear from the Public Health team from Bedfordshire and Luton  about the FREE workplace offer to support employers to improve employee wellbeing
