Headway Recruitment provides advice for coping with ageing population
Headway Recruitment has produced an infographic that aims to help prepare businesses for an ageing workforce.
With the UK's ageing population, 30% of the UK's workforce will need to be replaced over the next 20 years, as people reach retirement age. The challenge for businesses, Headway Recruitment believe, is to retain the skills needed to function, which will mean that the way businesses recruit will change. They may need to look overseas to fill those skills shortages. The infographic produced provides advice for businesses on how to prepare for this.
According to the infographic, areas most at risk of staff shortages include education and construction. Advice on avoiding this eventuality include offering flexible working and retraining current staff.
