Ageing Confidently – Supporting an ageing workforce
This report is the sixth and final in a series on the Future of Work. In each report the focus has been on expanding the opportunities to work for everyone across the UK. The first report addressed regional growth imbalances in the British economy and called for a devolution revolution that puts power in the hands of local government and allows left behind communities to develop a new competitive edge in the global economy. The second report looked at how a National Retraining Scheme would best work by giving workers the opportunity to save towards their own upskilling and reskilling. Earlier this year we called on the Government to get ahead of the curve on technology take-up and set in motion a movement to allow the British economy to become more technologically advanced. In this report we address the challenges presented by an ageing population.
