ABSTRACT
The article investigates what employers are doing to reward and retain their older workers and keep their valuable knowledge from disappearing out the door. An ageing workforce and increased life expectancy mean that many people may want to work on after normal retirement age. With proportionately fewer younger workers entering the labour market and no certainty about whether migration will continue at its current levels, employers will need to retain and attract older workers to maintain the skills and experience that they need to be competitive.
