Demographic changes mean workers are going to be in short supply in coming years - that will provide fresh opportunities for older employees, if they're prepared to learn and adapt.
Studies show that workers over 55 are often more productive than any other age group, but they often find it hard to get new jobs. Peter Black, one of Australia's few Certified Retirement Coaches, says employers should recognise the value of their mature age workers,and offer retraining and flexible working conditions to keep them in the workforce.
