This note summarises discussions from Ageing Better’s fulfilling work Roundtable of February 2016. Some 22 people participated in the roundtable discussion, coming from a range of backgrounds – academic, public, private and charity sectors.
On the day, three topics were proposed for discussion based on earlier scoping work by Ageing Better.
- Returning to work: What innovative approaches are there to support over-50s back into work either in the UK or internationally?
- Planning in mid-life: What information, support or advice does a 50-year-old today need to make an informed decision and plan for the rest of their working life?
- Engaging employers: What employer practices could have the greatest impact on the wellbeing of their older workers? What would convince employers that this is worth them implementing?
