From the ageing of the baby boomers to changes in government policies encouraging people to work longer – employers need to challenge stereotypes and stigmatisation of age to retain valuable older workers and create well-functioning age-diverse environments.

While most employers have not yet began to address the need to maintain the training and skills of their ageing workforces, it’s obvious that all sectors will need to accommodate more mid-life workers and manage extending working lives beyond previously normal retirement ages. And education and health at work will be pivotal to productivity in the future.

A World without Retirement? will examine the key areas for employer intervention in the ageing workforce.

David Sinclair from the International Longevity Centre wil be the chair of the discussion. Panellists include Debbie Price, Professor of Social Gerontology and Chris Phillipson, Professor of Gerontology, The University of Manchester, Vincent Reboul, the new managing director of Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance and Shri Rengasamy from Mercer.
