Explores issues relating to managing an age-diverse workforce in both our Employee Outlook and Labour Market Outlook surveys. The result is this combined overview of the findings comparing employee and employer/HR perspectives on this important topic.

This report, Managing an age-diverse workforce: employer and employee views, explores some of the key issues of managing an age-diverse workforce. Findings reveal that both HR professionals and employees recognise the benefits that age-diverse teams can bring to businesses and particularly highlight knowledge-sharing and the diverse perspectives this brings. The research suggests that HR tends to respond to ageing population issues in general in a reactive way. There is a lack of organisational activity and attention to ensuring enough skilled and diverse people of all ages are currently being recruited. Similarly managers are ill-equipped to promote teamwork in age-diverse teams.
