Webinar: Why is longevity important to business? Meet the ILC Partners

Date: Thursday 17 September 2020
Time: 2.30pm – 4.00pm BST (9.30am – 11.00am EDT)

Longevity will have a significant impact on business.

54p in every pound spent in the UK economy is spent by people aged 50 and over, amounting to £319bn every year.

An ageing workforce, extended working lives and possible skills shortages may all offer opportunities and threats to the long-term sustainability of many businesses.

If business can respond to this demographic change, we may be able to unlock a significant longevity dividend. In this webinar, ILC Partners set out why longevity matters to them. We explored:

  • How businesses (from financial services and consulting, to housing and care) are responding to the opportunities and challenges of longevity;
  • The challenges of working through, and planning beyond, COVID-19;
  • How businesses can be supported in adapting to change – What learnings can we take from our Partners working alongside us in the ageing sector?;
  • How can business work with government and international policy organisations to embrace demographic change and benefit from longevity?

The panellists representing our Partners Programme included:

  • Martin Jones, CEO at Home Instead Senior Care
  • Mary Bright, Corporate Affairs Manager and Special Advisor on Age at Phoenix Group
  • Shaun Crawford, Global Vice Chair, Industry at EY
  • Harriet Dunstan, Head of Marketing at Audley Group
  • Dr Emily Andrews, Senior Evidence Manager at Centre for Ageing Better
  • Richard Purcell, Insurance Innovation Lead at Hymans Robertson
