The ageing workforce and health, safety and wellbeing
Having a diverse workforce can create innovative and dynamic workplaces (Willing to Work report AHRC 2016). The ANU workplace manager survey 2018-2019 found that businesses believe hiring older workers can benefit their organisation. In order to support and retain ageing workers, employers should consider implementing appropriate support systems and processes for health, safety and wellbeing which meet their needs.
