Abstract:

It's official—we're living longer! Great news you'd think, but couple this with plummeting birth rates and there's trouble ahead. As more and more of the current baby-boomer workforce walk into retirement, the big question is ‘Who’s going to be left to step into their shoes? The most likely way forward is to find ways to encourage people to stay on at work longer. However, for this to be successful, ageist attitudes within the workplace will need to be stamped out.
