Productivity and Age
This Age UK briefing challenges assumptions about productivity and age.  Based on a review of the evidence on older workers and productivity, it shows that a person's age bears no relation to their ability or capability to perform the vast majority of jobs.  They are at least as productive as their younger colleagues.

About this guide

Our focus is on the 50+ jobseeker because the success rate of back to work support with this age group has not been as good as with other ages.

Of course, this is not always the case. There are success stories where helpful support has made the difference to someone's life.

This is where you come in. It is why your job is so important.
