  • retirement

    ..... the default retirement age (formerly 65) has been phased out - most people can now work for as long as they can.

    Mature Approach to Retirement

    Retirement doesn't always have to signal the end of professional life and recent research has indicated many workers are redefining it as a way to switch gears on the career front as opposed to grinding to a halt.

    A survey conducted by HSBC on the future of ageing revealed more than 60 per cent of people wanted to work in some way after they "retired" and that many were hoping to work part-time but found most employers were less accommodating to part time or more 'mature' workers.

    Hydro Group plc had an encouraging attitude towards a more mature generation of workers much earlier than legislated by the Government in Age Discrimination laws. As well as operating a highly-effective graduate and apprentice scheme, Hydro Group also have in place flexible working solutions to accommodate a team which includes five workers over the age of 60, two of whom are older than 65. back to top
