This paper considers how, with appropriate support from government and employers, the workplace and labour market will need to change to address one of the key challenges of the 21st century: an ageing workforce. It makes eight recommendations, including:

  • Integrating specialist support for older workers into occupational health and back to work services
  • Encouraging individuals and employers to plan early on for the health challenges of working in later life
  • Changing attitudes and creating an age friendly working environment.
