Ageing and the Workplace

Edinburgh Napier University
The Rivers Suite, Edinburgh Napier University, Craiglockhart Campus
Friday, May 19, 2017 - 10:00 to 15:00

The ageing of the population will have a significant impact on labour market and employment practices, as increasing numbers of older workers remain in work. Research has consistently found a lack of systematic plans by businesses, to prepare and benefit from these demographic and labour market changes.

This workshop will hear from a range of speakers about the potential workplace implications of the ageing population. The business case for, and best practice in, workplace age management will be discussed. These discussions will be underpinned by research on a range of key sectors in the economy.

Speakers will include: Age Scotland, the University of Edinburgh, NHS Health Scotland, and the University of Glasgow.

This workshop will be of particular interest to: employers with an interest in learning about workplace age management; equality and diversity professionals; occupational health professionals; policy makers and practitioners.

We hope that you will be able to join us.


Places are free, but limited.  Please RSVP Dr Valerie Egdell (v.egdell@napier.ac.uk) by 12 May 2017.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
