The multigen workforce
Is a multi-generational workforce considered a problem, or an opportunity to be seized by companies?
The ageing workforce is a concerning issue, affecting many European governments and businesses. As people live longer and birth rates drop, a range of economic challenges to finance retirement and healthcare are brought to light, including the maintenance of the employment skills base. With more than 15 percent of its population over 65 years of age, Europe has the highest proportion of older people in the developed world. That figure is projected to increase in some socio-economically emerging regions, since Europe’s demographic change is also influenced by migration.
