Introduction to Managing an Ageing Workforce (Seminar 1)


Tuesday 6 February 2018

The ability of any organisation to deliver high quality services is dependent on its people. The challenge for Australian organisations is that the workforce is ageing and that means that we need to think differently about how we attract, engage and retain our staff.

Given that the average age of intended retirement is currently 65 years, it suggests that a mass exodus could occur in the next ten years. If this retirement intent does eventuate, the loss of knowledge, experience and expertise would be substantial. Could your organisation afford this loss?

Organisations therefore need to look at how they can attract and retain these mature workers and harness the skills, motivation and experience for best business outcomes. But that is not the only impetus. Age diversity is invaluable in any organisation as it encourages innovation and a positive workplace culture, and any strategies that are introduced to engage and retain mature workers can only benefit all.

As such a structured, strategic approach to management of an age-diverse workforce is required.

Are you concerned that an ageing workforce is soon to be a real issue for you and your organisation (if not already!), but you’re not sure where or how to start addressing it?
