Future of Work@50+ An Initiative of the AARP Public Policy Institute

AARP Future of Work


The world of work is changing. How can workers adapt to the challenges of today and be prepared for the workplace of tomorrow? We are facing a new work reality. What trends define that reality? How can those who have lost their jobs find high-quality new jobs? What can we do about the persistent long-term unemployment that continues to affect older people? 


Future of Work@50+ is a multiyear initiative that will discuss the problem areas, highlight what we have learned and, most important, suggest policy solutions to ensure that older Americans have access to good-quality jobs and develop the skills they need to retain or obtain them.
