Strategies and best practices for the recruitment, retention and employment of older workers in the construction industry (2011)

The Construction Sector Council (CSC) has forecasted that growth in the sector and the retirement of workers will put pressure on the labour force and affect the availability of workers over the long term. To meet demand for these highly skilled workers, the construction industry must maximize all available labour pools including youth, women, First Nations, immigrants, and older workers.

Based on construction industry best practices and the application of ideas and concepts from other industries, this workbook provides a series of practical tools for the retention of older workers in the construction industry.

These tools are grouped into four areas: recruitment, retention, transition to retirement support, and other strategies and best practices.
