This invitation only breakfast is for HR Directors to discuss how best to respond to the opportunities and challenges of an ageing workforce, skills shortages as well as effective interventions to encourage retention and support longer working lives.
The UK’s population is ageing. People are living longer; the baby boomers are heading towards retirement and the birthrate has declined year on year since 2012. By 2020 a third of the UK workforce will be over the age of 50. This demographic shift affects the economy, the workforce and talent supply. The UK is already facing skills gaps and with fewer young people set to enter the workforce, the retention, retraining and recruitment of older workers is key.
As part of Business in the Community's work with the Department for Work and Pensions on ‘Fuller Working Lives’ we are convening a group of the most influential HR Directors in the UK to discuss how best to respond to the opportunities and challenges of an ageing workforce, skills shortages and effective interventions to encourage retention and support longer working lives.
As Chair of the Age at Work Leadership Team with Business in the Community, Andy Briggs, CEO Aviva UK Insurance and Government Business Champion for Older Workers with Business in the Community, will share the best practice that has been developed in the UK so far, including work on ‘mid-career MOTs’ and ways to retain skills as our UK workforce ages.
