THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Please note the date of this seminar has changed.
Delegates at this conference will consider the challenges ahead for policymakers in light of the ageing population - looking at key policy issues around older workers, extending working lives and State Pension Age reform.
The seminar follows recent Government proposals to raise the State Pension Age (SPA) from 67 to 68, in response to John Cridland’s independent review on the issue - which recommended increasing the SPA in line with life expectancy. Sessions will consider the implications of Government’s newly stated aims to re-balance the SPA so that on average individuals spend up to 32% of their adult life receiving a state pension, and the challenges for ensuring that all retirees have sufficient income to support them.
Following the publication of the Fuller Working Lives Strategy, further discussion will consider steps that can be taken to help extend and improve working lives for older employees - including enhancing health and well-being, changing recruitment practices, supporting those with caring responsibilities and Cridland’s call for a ‘Mid-life MOT’ for workers to plan the rest of their careers.
The conference will bring together policymakers with key stakeholders including pensions and retirement providers, representatives of employers and trade unions, older people’s groups, HR professionals, lawyers, academics, and members of the national and trade press.
