Events > Feedback from 'Getting Business Ready for an Ageing Society' Workshop
UK Policy experts attended this workshop in February 2011. The theme of this workshop was ‘getting business ready for an ageing society’. It was held against the backdrop of workforce ageing, the UK’s Government’s decision to phase out the Default Retirement Age (DRA) and a broad devolution of power from national to local levels. Our goals for the day were:
1. To support policy development and implementation at the national level through exploration of largely EU funded, practice based activity at the local level.
2. To explore the implications of putting emerging national policy into practice through activity at local levels led by local enterprise partnerships and other local leadership structures.
