Workshop 5 focused on research and innovative practice to support upskilling and earnings progression, highlighting the powerful benefits that adult learning can confer.

We find a major shift in employers’ approaches to ageing workforces between 2009 and 2017, with strong decreases in those that offered no age management (47% to 30%) and those focusing on exit measures (21% to 6%), and an increase in active organizations (19% to 52%). Active age management is no longer concentrated in large and developing organizations, but has become a standard human resources tool economy-wide. Overall, there is a long-term trend away from exit measures towards the application of pro-active age management measures. More involvement of employers in retaining older adults in the workplace may signal a growing awareness of the changing demographic reality.
