In the Asia-Pacific, where there's a younger workforce, changes toward flexibility and away from hierarchies are viewed positively. In North America and Europe, where the workforce tends to skew older, trends like automation and global hiring are viewed less positively because older workers value job stability and seek to maintain the status quo. Against a background of population ageing, policy makers in the majority of industrialised countries are developing policies aimed at extending working life and promoting the benefits of employing older workers. This report reviews developments in several countries and offers recommendations for public on a review of recent literature and interviews with experts in Australia.
