On 14 July 2014, the government appointed Dr Ros Altmann CBE as its Business Champion for Older Workers. As part of her role, Dr Altmann has produced this report on working in later life. It recommends that employers need to focus on the 3 ‘R’s:

  • Retain – keeping older workers and their skills in the workplace through, for example, flexible working;
  • Retrain – ongoing workplace training irrespective of age, and opportunities for Mid-life Career Reviews; and
  • Recruit – stamp out age discrimination from the recruitment process.
