Ageing workforce and graduated retirement strategies

The Australian workforce is ageing, creating new challenges and opportunities for organisations. This complex and changing dynamic present’s significant challenges for employers to manage health and safety, while also meeting operational requirements and maintaining a positive workplace culture that embraces the significant benefits presented by the ageing workforce. 

Workplaces must consider a specific and meaningful approach to supporting their ageing workers – beginning well before they reach retirement age. This involves aligning all aspects of health and wellbeing with the demands of a working role and individual needs and goals. This approach ensures that organisations are ready to manage the challenges and opportunities that are presented by an aging workforce and individual team members are empowered to make informed and meaningful transition decisions based upon their holistic wellbeing.  

This interactive session will cover the following topics: 

  • The best practice approach to creating work that is safe, meaningful, engaging and relevant to your ageing workforce 
  • Strategies to understand and respond to changing capacity and implement reasonable adjustments 
  • Creating meaningful ageing workforce programs for workers that meet both individual and organisation needs 
  • Strategies for engaging your ageing workforce in the graduated retirement process, having better transition conversations and managing the potential risks involved in graduated retirement including fitness for work 

Recommended for: Employers, People Managers, Human Resources, Health and Safety practitioners and those interested in taking a new approach to safety culture.

Suitable duties in return to work (RTW)

A suitable duties plan is a critical part of the return to work process. We all know that returning to work safely and as soon as possible after a work-related injury is the best outcome for the injured worker and the employer

Returning to work may not mean the injured worker returning to their usual duties. Depending on the nature and severity of their injury, an injured worker may need a graduated approach to return to work and suitable duties. The employer's relationship with the injured worker is a key determining factor in a successful return to work.

In this course, we discuss the importance of communication and how this can impact a successful return to work as well as the following topics:

•    Why provide suitable duties
•    The role of the RTW Coordinator
•    The employer's legal obligations concerning employee RTW
•    Making appropriate decisions
•    What to do when there is a lack of suitable duties or suitable duties are unable to be identified.
