The government published the policy paper Fuller Working Lives: a partnership approach in February 2017 with the aim of increasing the retention, retraining and recruitment of older workers. The strategy is led by employers who understand the business case to drive change.
The Business in the Community Age at Work leadership team will take the government’s work forward by promoting the benefits of employing older workers to employers across the UK.

There are more older people in employment than ever before, but many people over 50 are at risk of leaving the workforce early, and not necessarily because they want to.
Staying in work and taking control of when and how you retire can give you more money in later life as well as benefit your health and wellbeing.
