On Wednesday morning at 09:30, the Office for National Statistics is publishing a report exploring “the implications of the pandemic-driven change in working arrangements on the timing of older workers' exit from the labour market”. With this in mind, we want to know:
- Has the WFH phenomenon resulted in older workers leaving the workforce sooner than was the case pre-pandemic? If so, why is this?
- How, in your experience, is the growing shift towards homeworking impacting older workers? Is it making them less attractive because they are considered less ‘tech-savvy’?
Any other observations, feel free to add. But please keep your response short and to the point.
