Working Britain is getting older. People are working longer, past retirement age – and not necessarily because they have to. It’s important to remember that while they might have different needs and priorities than their younger peers, older workers bring a huge amount of experience and value to a company.
Adapting your benefits offering to support a varied workforce not only benefits the employees themselves, but can also help to reduce staff turnover by boosting loyalty and morale. Don’t forget about the sandwich generation too – those people who are financially responsible for children, as well as an elderly relative. Ensuring that there is a good network in the workplace can be incredibly valuable when it comes to spotting mental or physical health issues early and helping to prevent sickness absence.
