Leadership Dinner: Ageing Workforce - Bristol

Date:

Time: to

Venue: 
Bristol BS34

This invitation only dinner, is an opportunity to learn about the impact of demographic change on businesses. Attendees will hear how leading employers are retaining, retraining and recruiting older workers.

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. Half of all adults in the UK will be over 50 years old by 2030. This demographic shift affects the economy, the workforce and talent supply. The UK is already facing talent and skills gaps, and with fewer young people set to enter the workforce, the retention, retraining and recruitment of older workers is key. 
 
However, Business in the Community's Missing Million research found a million people over 50 out of work, but who want to work if the right opportunities were available. Of those over 50 who leave the workforce early, the most common reasons are a lack of appropriate skills, redundancy, caring responsibilities, health conditions, and age discrimination. Business must take action to challenge age-stereotypes, support older workers’ needs, and enable longer working lives.
 
This dinner will provide an opportunity for you to learn about the ageing population and age bias and discuss this impact of demographic change on their own organisation. Attendees will hear how leading employers are taking steps to retain, retrain and recruit older workers.
