Past Project:The Longevity Economy
Mature workers and entrepreneurs are a vastly untapped resource. Our project is focused on adding their value to our local labour market and businesses.
We Need Your Help!
We are currently seeking mature job seekers living in London and area, age 55+ to participate in our research study. We will only need about 30 minutes of your time, and in exchange you will receive a gift certificate to a local retailer. In order to ensure your safety, research sessions are done remotely via video conference.

Why Mature Workers?
Older Workers can bring decades of experience, strong communication skills, and supervisory experience to a variety of workplaces. As outlined in a report on age-friendly workplaces by Employment and Social Development Canada, there are multiple benefits of recruiting someone who is older, despite the misconceptions that exist around this group.
We seek to create strategic recommendations and tools which will enable employers and community stakeholders to recognize and leverage the value of the older worker.
Led by Over 55 Skills At Work, this community based initiative is focused on creating more opportunities for entrepreneurs and job seekers age 55+.
