Engagement within your organisation


To make sure that employees are supported and enabled to work safely to a later, raised retirement age, there is a need to raise the profile of the opportunities and challenges associated with the ageing workforce with NHS organisations.

There are a range of suggested approaches for you to consider when planning your own engagement with employees, senior management and trade union colleagues.
