An age-aware organisation will want to consider the following steps, as detailed on page 11 of the ageing workforce organisation readiness checklists.
The ageing workforce checklist
has been designed to assess an organisation's readiness, awareness and preparation for the opportunities and challenges an ageing workforce might bring. In each section, there are a number of indicators of good practice. Use these to assess your current performance and action plan for the future.
Age-aware organisations will already have knowledge of the benefits described within various health and wellbeing reports, such as the Boorman report, and will want to consider their occupational health response in light of the ageing workforce.
