"This review focuses on the ageing workforce, how organisations are reacting to this, and the likely effects of changing work requirements and environments on older people.
It covers 4 broad areas:

changing institutional arrangements
work environments
employer attitudes
older workers’ ability to work"

Page 5 of report : "There is a lack of agreement on what constitutes an ‘older worker’, with workers considered ‘older’ at ages ranging from 28 to 75 years (McCarthy et al., 2014). This review focuses on workers at or above age 65 but draws on research evidence that has conceptualised older at a variety of ages."
