Ageing workforce

Age or opportunity? Change how you view your workforce.

By 2030 half of all adults in the UK will be over 50. This means that understanding the challenges and opportunities presented by an ageing workforce will be vital for your business to thrive.

We want to help businesses to look beyond age and see the opportunity that lies within supporting people over 50 to remain in or return to work. By engaging with our Age at Work programme, you will gain access to a fantastic range of toolkits, networks and support to unlock a whole host of benefits for your business and your employees.

  • Support businesses to be more age-inclusive in their approach to retaining, retraining and recruiting older workers
  • Raise awareness of the need for an age-inclusive agenda in government, business and wider society
  • Support mature workers to remain in or return to work

Age at Work is not delivered in England by Business in the Community, but we can support your business to respond to our ageing population and the needs of older workers in other ways. Learn more about Business in the Community’s work on age nationally.
