HR Seminar – Age: managing changing demographics in the workforce – Manchester – 25 June

By 2024 more than 1 in 4 (18m people) will be over 60.

For employers this represents opportunities and challenges. In the face of a potential shortage of available workers due to demographic changes (and the possible loss of EU workers), older workers can provide a pool of skilled, experienced employees to fill the talent gap.

Considerations for your business:

There are a number of legal and practical considerations for employers to bear in mind as a result of these demographic changes which we will consider during this inter-active seminar, including:

  • Age discrimination
  • Performance management / capability
  • Flexible working
  • H&S and wellbeing issues
  • Age friendly employment
  • Pensions:
    • Affordability of retirement in view of rise in state pension age
    • Advance planning
    • Workplace pensions
    • Death-in-service issues
    • Smart benefits
    • Attracting and retention of employees


The seminar will last for 1.5 hours, with networking over breakfast
Registration / breakfast from 8.30am. Seminar will close by 10.30am


8.30 – 10.30am, Tuesday, 25 June 2019
