Older workers disadvantaged

The Furlough scheme is due to be withdrawn at the end of September and reports are warning of a raft of redundancies as businesses decide that they can no longer keep their employees on.

Research from the Resolution Foundation have stated that older workers (55 – 64) are at higher risk of unemployment.

This age group are not so ‘savvy’ when it comes to technology and the newer ways of working and most businesses tend to concentrate on the younger generations when training, who are more able to take to the new ways of working, however the danger is that we will end up with a whole generation being unemployable because of their outdated skills.

Businesses are being urged not to dismiss the experience that older workers can bring to their roles.
