By 2020 those in the over-50 age category will comprise almost one third of the working age population. By 2022 there will be 3.7 million more people aged between 50 and the State Pension age. The majority of older workers work for small and medium sized businesses.
The Workplace Team, Health Promotion, Fife Health & Social Care Partnership and Fife Health & Wellbeing Alliance commissioned Edinburgh Napier University to investigate the current knowledge, understanding and management of an ageing workforce in Fife workplaces.
The research was launched at an event on Tuesday 15th August 2017.
