THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Delegates at this conference will consider the challenges ahead for policymakers in light of the ageing population and the independent review by John Cridland of the State Pension Age (SPA), which recommended increasing the SPA in line with life expectancy.
Sessions will consider how a reformed SPA might affect different social and age groups as they prepare for retirement, and the challenges for ensuring that all retirees have sufficient income to support them.
Following the recent publication of the Government’s Fuller Working Lives Strategy, further discussion will consider steps that can be taken to help extend and improve working lives for older employees - including improving 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 the 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.
