Senior Research Fellow Daniela Andrei and Research Fellow Jane Chong presented research on COVID-19 and Mature Workers at the Mature Workers in Organisations Policy Dialogue. The hybrid-style event brought together Australian and international experts, policymakers, industry representatives and researchers to consider current and future challenges of the ageing workforce. It was held at the Australian National University on the 10th of June.
In 2020, we launched a longitudinal study on how adults aged 45 and over were affected and responded to the impacts of COVID-19. Preliminary findings revealed a decreasing trend in the quality of work for mature workers, with scores for relational aspects of work, scheduling flexibility, task variety and tolerable demands at work being lower in November 2020 compared to June 2020.
