Firms pledge to recruit more over-50s
Aviva, Barclays, Atos and five other firms have agreed to promote over-50s employment by publishing data about the age of their workforce. In February, he asked firms to increase older worker numbers by 12% by 2022. Mr Briggs warned that by then, there will be 14.5 million more jobs, but only seven million younger workers entering the workplace. Mr Briggs, who is also chief executive of Aviva UK Life, wants more companies to commit to his pledge and publish data about the age of their workforce to help ensure his target of one million more older workers by 2022. "Businesses can show leadership here, through committing to real change and actively seeking to recruit more over-50s into their organisations," he said.
