Thinking Out Loud
Tackling the issues that confront 45+ experienced professionals looking for work or wanting to start a business
The idea of a linear career is being disrupted. The traditional career trajectory is changing as workers, especially those of mature-age seek opportunities to move in new directions.
New research indicates that it will be all but impossible to turn back the clock on flexible working arrangements. The pandemic has created a preference for a mix of both remote and office-based work. While it will create challenges for employers, it will also open up opportunities to reimagine work.
Compared to many other OECD countries, Australia has fewer older workers in the workforce. Indeed there is often a ‘deficit’ view of our ageing population as a burden rather than recognising the potential of this under utilised talent pool. Mature-aged entrepreneurs, the fast growing segment of entrepreneurship in the country, are a great example of a strength-based view and we should be doing more to foster this form of workforce participation.
