DIAN 2017 Meeting 3
The Corporate Implications of Living Longer
Virtual and In-hub meeting
We at Community Business are committed to moving the needle and exploring new ways to approach challenges in creating more inclusive workplaces.
The book The 100-Year Life by Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott outlines the challenges and opportunities brought about by greater life expectancy. Life expectancy has been steadily increasing over the past decades and has led to social changes that have greatly impacted the way we live and work, moving away from the three stage life into a multi-stage life. However, companies have not changed the way we manage and motivate talent. Individuals, companies and governments all have a role to play in ensuring we structure our lives differently so we can make the most of a longer life. This is not an issue for when we are old but an urgent and imminent one.
With all these changes, DIAN is interested in exploring how we can be proactive and responsive to the needs of our workforce and ensure that we are prepared to build inclusion into our future workplace.
- Develop an understanding of what the corporate implications of living longer are
- Explore how we can continue to be inclusive and accommodate the changing needs of talent
- Discover how we can motivate and retain talent of different ages
