Age Management Training- Experienced Worker Program
There are dynamic and unprecedented changes occurring in the demographic mix of Australia’s workforce. The good news is we are living longer than previous generations. However, there has been a trend over the last decade for workers to consider retiring at earlier ages than was previously the norm.
This can cause difficulties from a financial perspective, for retirees to ensure they have enough savings to fund the quality of life they want during a longer retirement. In addition, workers need to consider what they will do during this long period of retirement, and plan well ahead to ensure they have laid the foundation for an enjoyable and fulfilling retirement.
Rather than early retirement, we should instead consider the advantages of staying in the workforce for longer.
As will be shown in this programme, all workers should re-think how long they stay in the workforce. Employers also should encourage workers to remain working longer.
The programme covers six core modules:
1. Australia’s changing demographics and the implications for workers and employers,
2. Appreciate the value of experienced workers and diversity of generations working together,
3. Employers of choice,
4. Embrace today’s flexible working relationship,
5. Benefits for experienced workers staying engaged in the workforce,
6. Create a personal career/life plan.
Through this programme, participants will learn:
1. About changes to life expectancy rates and the general demographics of the population and what it means to them,
2. To assess their own work and life objectives and how to put a plan in place to achieve and fund this,
3. To understand that work and retirement and not mutually exclusive and be more motivated to continue working,
4. About flexible options to achieve a satisfying and fulfilling work/life balance within the constraints of a sponsoring organisation’s objectives/policies.
Note: This program was developed by the Australian Government Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) to assist organisations implement policies and practices to increase their attraction and retention of mature age workers, and help experienced workers gain and implement a phased retirement, or return to the workplace. Barbara Anderson has been accredited to deliver this program.
