Work and Retirement

Wednesday 22nd April; Friends Life, One New Change, EC4M 9EF, London; 12:00 (for a 12:30 start) - 15:00

You are invited to attend the launch of 'The Missing Million - Recommendations for Action', the third in the series of three Missing Million reports. The event is taking place as part of Responsible Business Week and will see us set out the recommendations that will drive real change on age at work.

The first in the series (The Missing Million: Illuminating the employment challenges of the older 50s) set out the challenge we face – the million people over 50 who have been pushed out of the labour market against their will. The second (The Missing Million: Pathways back into employment) described the barriers older people face as they seek to return to work. This third report sets out our recommendations for action – what business and government can do to prevent early exit from the workplace, and what government can do to support people to stay in work and to work longer, as our population is ageing.

Simon Fanshawe is chairing, and delegates will have the chance to hear from a number of companies including Friends Life, Walgreens Boots Alliance and the Co-Operative about their work on this agenda. We will also hear from the TUC about the practical action they are taking in workplaces to support working longer.

Registration for this event closes on Tuesday 14th April. If you are interested in attending, please register via the link below:
