DWP Fuller Working Lives Strategy
Today the DWP has published its strategy document for Fuller Working Lives with its stated ambition to support individuals aged 50 years and over to remain in and return to the labour market and tackle the barriers to doing so.
Through CANTAB Corporate Health, I was pleased to support the development of the strategy as part of the health management group.
One of the key areas of health as we get older is cognition – our thinking ability. Our cognitive health determines what work we can do and how long we can do it for.
Giving people the opportunity to measure their cognitive health enables them to understand how their performance relates to their age and other factors. If it is below expected levels then they can take action to remediate or improve.
Employers now recognise just how important this is and are incorporating CANTAB assessments into their health and wellbeing programmes.
