Employing and retaining older workers

The perception of what constitutes an ‘older’ worker has shifted to a younger age over the three surveys. For example, there has been a marked increase in those selecting 51-55, from 10.8% in 2018 to 16.9% in the current survey. Across the same period there has been an 8% drop in those selecting 61 – 65 as the appropriate age. This is of concern.
