Duncan Brown, Head of HR Consultancy, offers his contribution to 2017's Perspectives on HR series of essays. In the context of an ageing workforce and growing concerns over intergenerational differences in the workplace, Duncan discusses the practical implications for HR.

The essay aims to place these demographic changes in the context of IES's work, both recent and past. Drawing from IES's rich expertise both in research and consultancy in the field, Duncan offers four age-related areas that are worthy of all HR practitioners' attention, investigation and possible action.
