Throughout this European Year for Active Ageing, we’ve been stressing the importance of ‘age management’ in the workplace.

There are all kinds of things that employers can be doing, to improve the fit between the work that a job demands and the capabilities of workers as they get older: everything from reducing physical workloads to introducing regular short breaks into the working day.

Already, many European organisations are taking this kind of action, to help older people stay working longer in the workplace, meaning that organisations themselves benefit from the greater experience that older workers can offer.
