Generations@Work: Building New Workplaces

Australia’s population is ageing! Falling mortality and fertility rates combined with the effect of a baby boomer generation moving into the older age brackets, challenge us to revisit the way we all work together

What are the challenges?

  • Managing multiple generations at work
  • Younger managers working with older staff
  • Mature age staff  - maintaining skills, transitioning out
  • Skill shortages & loss of knowledge – unless older workers can be persuaded to stay on

  • Education – Av age: 43.4yrs (Up 5.2 yrs over last 2 decades)
