Summary The ageing population creates ongoing opportunities and challenges to engage an older workforce in Australia. This chapter discusses some of these opportunities and challenges by providing a demographic overview of the ageing population and ageing workforce before discussing generational differences, and age diversity practices that may be implemented to respond to this social challenge. Following this, the chapter then discusses strategies that could be used to attract and retain an age-diverse workforce before concluding that a multitude of approaches is needed to respond more effectively to population ageing and to capture the full benefits of a diverse workforce.
