  • 29% of employers are already seeing a rise in the average age of employees 37% of employers expect to see their workforce get older in the future, 38% believe that ageing workforce health issues will impact their company
  • With the ending of compulsory retirement age in 2011 and with the current economic crisis, many of us will be working into old age. So what impact could this pose on workforce health issues? Rising sickness absence rates, ill health retirement, worsening of medical conditions, reduced working hours and more. What impact will this also have on today’s up and coming new comers into the workplace?
  • This event will also be a great opportunity to network, learn, meet key partners and providers of related services and get involved in the Slough business community.The World Economic Forum 2012 identifies three major threats to future economic growth; ageing populations, non – communicable disease incidence (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease & cancer) and global talent shortages. Investing in a sustainable and healthy workforce is a socio-economic imperative. No organisation can be competitive in the future without healthy and productive people
