By 2025, the biggest age group of employees is likely to be the over 50’s. People over 50 now make up nearly one-third (31%) of the entire UK workforce (up from 21% in the early 1990s*) and if growth continues at the current rate, will be the dominant group by 2025.
Now, more than ever, employers need to consider how we can address the issues and opportunities for older workers and the wider workforce. Just as enabling work+parenting has become a hygiene factor for employers, it’s now imperative to address work+carers.
The 50+ group often includes your senior talent and keepers of core knowledge and relationships. There are many further factors combining to make this a group worthy of some forward-planning: the baby boomer population bulge, increased longevity, more fluid retirement ages, more involved grandparents and changes to pensions (particularly for women). But whatever the reasons, the burning platform for employers is clear.
In this webinar, we’ll be sharing our experts’ experiences and opinions and showcasing best practice for employers.
Host and HR professional James Marsh will be joined by a range of employers, commentators and experts including Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching and Consultancy of My Family Care, and Deborah Richards, Diversity and Inclusion Leader at IBM. Deborah will share insights into how multiple diversity award winner, IBM approaches supporting carers in the workplace. Jennifer will be bringing a very broad perspective on the challenges for employers, and insights gained through her work with employers of different sizes and sectors.
Also joining the discussion will be Daniel Pike, Co-Founder of Supercarers and Caroline Waters OBE, Vice President of Carers UK. Daniel will provide an overview of the changing landscape of care and do some future-gazing on the work and care front, and Caroline will be sharing her experiences of what works in supporting carers in the workplace including the award winning Carer’s Passport scheme developed at BT.
