What’s this webinar about?
Eighteen percent of the UK population was aged over 65 in 2016 but this is expected to increase to 25% by 2050, constituting one of the most significant social transformations of the 21st century. It has wide-reaching implications for organizations, which must start rethinking their products, services and management.
This webinar will discuss how organizations can adapt so individuals can have a meaningful career throughout their lives and remain in employment longer. It’ll also consider how to enable those with carer responsibilities to stay in employment, as part of an organization’s diversity and inclusion considerations.
