Ageing Workforce

Group Session
3 Hours

The Australian workforce is ageing, creating new challenges for organisations.

The result is that the Australian workforce is greatly transforming with mature workers now retiring later and considering career changes. In addition, younger workers have greatly different attitudes towards their careers and their expectations of work than previous generations.

This complex and changing dynamic presents significant challenges for employers to manage health and safety, while also meeting operational requirements and maintaining a positive workplace culture.

Workshop Objectives & Key Outcomes

Workplace Risk has developed our Human Maintenance Schedule methodology that aligns the performance of people with the demands of the role, and ensures that organisations are ready to manage the challenges and opportunities that are presented by an aging workforce.

The Managing an Ageing Workforce Workshop provides an overview of this approach and aims to up-skill executives, managers, and supervisors in managing the workplace health and wellbeing of their workforce.

Taking an interactive approach, Workplace Risk focus on a range of practical case studies, skills building activities, and the provision of effective workplace tools to ensure that organisations are equipped to best address the diverse health and wellbeing needs of workers.

Over the course of workshop Workplace Risk will up-skill managers in:

  • Recognising the different needs and challenges experienced by workers throughout the spectrum of their working life
  • Understanding an employer’s legal obligations in the health and wellbeing space
  • Identifying the early warning signs of physical and psychological conditions
  • Developing strategies for assisting workers with their health and wellbeing and implementing a uniform workplace policy
  • Understanding the importance of a human maintenance schedule based upon workability
  • Considering reasonable adjustments and flexible working arrangements
  • Utilising the inherent requirements of job as a workforce management strategy.
