Official figures have shown that the number of people in work leapt 102,000 to 32.2 million in the three months to November, and over three quarters of the growth came in the older, over 50s age group, this is the highest it has been since the last record.
The figures show more than 10 million over 50s are now in work, the highest figure ever since records began.
Experts have said that the figures reflect Britain’s ageing society but also the fact that more businesses are looking to cash in on older workers “experience, talents and loyalty”. The reputation of over 50s working traits may have lead to the increase of employment because employers are looking for employees that are worth their time and money.
