Public sector urged to tap experience of older workers

Excellent article in the Guardian by Jo Adetunji pointing out amongst other things that around £31bn could be saved annually if the proportion of 50- to 69-year-olds in work increased by 0.25%. She also discusses how to make the most of the experience of older workers and how they will not necessarily be taking up posts that could be filled by younger people. Most of the over 60's that I know want flexible working and less paid work which enables them to follow other passions or provide caring when required.
