[On-Demand] How to Attract and Engage Older Workers

As policymakers take a carrot-and-stick approach to increasing employment for the over-50s, what should businesses be doing to attract and retain older talent?

Official statistics suggest that around 27% of people aged 50-64 are currently economically inactive. That is more than 3.5 million people, and nearly a million of these have left work since the pandemic.

Changing demographics mean that almost a third of the UK workforce is now over 50. And 73% of the UK’s employment growth over the last 30 years has come from workers aged 50-plus.

This Personnel Today webinar, in association with PeopleScout, examines the needs of older workers, how to attract and recruit them and how to best utilise their skills and experience.

Watch now to find out:

  • what is keeping so many over-50s economically inactive.
  • how to create hiring strategies to attract and retain older workers.
  • the importance of providing flexible work schedules and compensation structures.
  • how recruiting for capability rather than direct experience can broaden talent pools.
