How to create an age-friendly workplace that hires, manages and engages its employees meaningfully through job-redesign? Rapid advancement in technology, coupled with an ageing population requires progressive employers to continuously adapt their HR practices to remain relevant and attractive to the workforce. When an organization shows that it welcomes challenges and opportunities arising from its multi-generation workforce, employees can grow with the organization, allowing the organization to retain key human talent and acquire stability and efficiency with the reduced need for time and high costs incurred through employee turnovers.

Leveraging on Multi-Generational Workforce to Drive Productivity and Growth

Successfully managing a multi-generational workforce involves being flexible with changes such as reorganising responsibilities to make the workplace more age-friendly, meeting the Easy-Safe-Smart Job Redesign Criteria. From the employee’s perspective, the aim is to place the right person at the right job, and meet the needs of that person, so that he feels engaged, inspired, greater job satisfaction, and also physical safety.

Job Redesign & Flexible Work Arrangements that Work

When it comes to redesigning of jobs, you need to be a Progressive Employer & HR Professional. You will need to re-look at what work should be done in a job and how the tasks, duties & responsibilities of a specific job should be restructured, and also the pre-existing rules & regulations surrounding it.
