Periodic Assessments

Aging Workforce Assessments

It has been widely documented and reported that the Australian population is aging rapidly, as this chart indicates by the year 2012 80% will be over 45 years of age. This combined with the skills shortage, means that organisations will need to manage a larger number of middle aged, older workers.

Periodic Workforce Assessments

It's prudent to have periodic assessments for all employees, not just those over 45, but those also who may be moving internally within the organisation undertaking a new position or who have performed the same role for some time, as their body will be different from when they began the role. Along with a new job comes a new physical impact on the person.
