How does increasing life expectancy impact on the way we design careers and work? What has gotten us to this point in career and work design probably won’t assist in navigating longer (working) lives from the physical and mental challenges of longevity. Traditional career strategies are not likely to assist modern workers adjust to the changing nature of human/system interactions. This is especially true for generalists and those in low-skill occupations.
Join us for an interactive session about how these challenges might play out in the Australian context. You’ll leave with a practical sense of what you can do and gain some ideas for future research.
