New Zealand's ageing workforce - the elephant in the room for many companies
Monday, 12 February 2018
Let’s face it, we are living longer and the old retirement age just isn't reflective of how much healthier we are. However, people who had hard physical jobs may need to scale back a bit and work less hours or consider a different twilight career.
A big consideration for businesses though is that with ages come disability, including Parkinson’s, Dementia, worsening eyesight and hearing etc. Protections must be put in place so that these disabilities can be identified and assisted.
