Managing Older Workers for Engagement, Innovation & Great Business Outcomes (Seminar 3)


Tuesday 27 March 2018.

It may or may not come as a surprise to you but not everyone approaching the age of retirement is actually planning to retire in the true sense of the word. Without a doubt there are those for whom retirement can’t come soon enough, but there is an equal portion who want to keep working in some capacity. In fact, 13% of Australians aged over 45 said they intend to never retire!

These people want to stay active in the workplace and on the whole are healthy and motivated. The stereotypes that mature workers are ‘past it’ and unable to adapt to new technology are not valid. They are valuable assets to any organisation. We therefore need to think differently about how we engage and support our mature workers and harness their skills, motivation and experience for best business outcomes. The good news is that it’s not actually that difficult.

Whatever initiatives you introduce to support mature workers can only benefit all, yourself included. Think of it this way, rather than trying to introduce ageing workforce management strategies (and further shun older workers), create age-inclusive strategies. Diversity (including age) is invaluable to an organisation as it encourages innovation and a positive workplace culture, thus helping organisations to be at the forefront of their industry.
