It’s not all doom n’ gloom. I have confidence that businesses will naturally adapt to changing demography and become increasingly flexible in the hours and options they offer to mature workers.
So said the Hon.Peter Primrose, NSW Minister for Ageing at yesterday’s launch of the MACA roundtable discussion paper, Employment and Retention Strategies of Older Workers.
SageCo facilitated the roundtable forum on behalf of MACA late last year, bringing together organisations including Westpac, IBM, RTA NSW, The Salvation Army, Allianz and KPMG to discuss and debate all things ageing workforce and share success stories.
This report is about ensuring a productive, skilled and adaptable workforce which forms the whole of Government Strategy ~ Towards 2030. The fantastic practice highlighted by employers in this report needs to amplified.
Good news too from the Minister for SageCo’s Local Government clients with the NSW State Government SageCentre being extended for access by all Councils from November.
This should hopefully build on the success experienced by last year’s Diversity@Work Award winners, Port Stephens Council, who forged powerful connections with the local mature age community and effectively solved their skills shortage as a result! This case study and many more can be found in the SageCentre.
Not all doom and gloom by any means.
