12 May 2010 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement
Britain's older workers look set to hold the aces in 2020, says Friends Provident in its latest Visions of Britain 2020 report. The second report in the series reveals that the 'grey workforce' will grow significantly, with an extra two million people aged 55 and above in the workplace (7.16m people compared to 5.14m today). The employment experts consulted for the report agree that a lack of talent and skills shortages in the workforce will ensure that these older workers are more valued in the future than today. In addition, the recession has vividly demonstrated the value of experience, and the research predicts employers will place more of a premium on those with years under their belts.
