PwC golden age index: How well are OECD economies adapting to an older workforce?
One of the key megatrends affecting the UK and most other developed countries is an ageing population. Harnessing the potential of older workers will therefore become an increasingly important source of competitive advantage for both nations and businesses. To explore how the UK compares with other OECD economies in this regard, PwC has developed a new ‘Golden Age Index’ comparing how well they are utilising workers aged 55 and over. The index includes relative employment, earnings and training rates for older workers for 34 OECD countries over the period since 2003.
