In March, Jennifer Luke presented to the ACCELL research team highlights of both her previous MEd and current PhD research into the motivation, career adaptability and willingness of retirees successfully returning to the workforce in either paid or voluntary roles.

Jennifer argued that both within Australian and globally, there is an immediate need for an injection of skills from mature age workers and retirees to strengthen workforce productivity. But before looking at workforce capability solutions that will entice retirees back into employment… you need to firstly focus on retirees.

What are their needs? Do they wish to return or continue working? We look forward to Jennifer answering these questions as she completes her valuable research.
