Navigating an Ageing Workforce
Wellbeing and mental health in older workers
Who we are
The Ageing Workforce Ready (AWR) project is looking to make a difference to the mental health and wellbeing of Victorian workers with funding received from WorkSafe’s WorkWell Mental Health Improvement Fund.
Many organisations are missing out on the benefits that older workers bring with many individuals suffering personally when employers and recruiters fail to recognise the reality of an ageing population. The AWR project is a collaboration between public transport companies, Australia’s largest superannuation fund, organisational psychologists, peak industry bodies and the unions. Together we are testing initiatives that organisations from any industry can use to engage and support older workers.
Late career isn’t much talked about, and we want to start the conversation. As we live longer, healthier lives it will often be late career that’s extended, not retirement. If we are to transition to retirement with a sense of fulfilment, let’s really think about how to navigate late career.
