    Overpaid? Over-the-hill? Over retirement? Why over-50s are heading back to work

    Our third Inspire session looks more broadly at the ever-deepening diversity which informs the new age of employment. As pension and retirement consultants, we will always work with employers grappling with how social and economic upheaval has disrupted what was previously a conventional retirement pattern. The evidence is clear that those of us in our third age are taking a radically different approach to later life because there are more options available. How can you help your workforce make an informed choice at this critical stage?

    You can learn more about the full Inspire webinar series here.
