With three-quarters of employees anticipating working beyond 65, the number of Australians working past the official retirement age is expected to treble by 2017, posing some serious challenges for employers and recruitment in Sydney. Most people between the ages of 65 and 70 say that they will carry on working because they want to, whereas over half say that they believe that they will have to keep working thorough financial necessity - something that could have some serious implications for levels of employee motivation and engagement and recruitment in Sydney.

It has been found that older employees could be resentful about their need to continue working, which is not conducive to good job performance, and recruitment in Sydney would ultimately suffer from incompetence and adversely work cover claims would increase. Employers must to focus on maintaining motivation by ensuring that older workers are given interesting and fulfilling jobs and full access to the training they need so that recruitment levels in Sydney do not suffer.
