Understanding Effective Training for Older Workers: Nationally Representative Evidence
The aging workforce is a critical global demographic trend that firms need to manage. How to best utilise older workers is a question which has previously been ignored, but now firms realise its importance for the future. One potential solution is to understand the type and nature of training needed for older workers in order to provide enabling conditions to allow them to flourish and contribute to their organisations.
In this webinar, Prof. Byron Lee will share his insights on this topic with particular attention to how training may be different for older workers compared to younger workers based on a study using nationally representative data. The policy and practical implications of these results will also be discussed.
