The report, carried out by XpertHR and seen by Personnel Today, shows that the abolition of the default retirement age means that the majority of firms simply intend to allow workers to continue in their role until they themselves decide to leave, rather than using tools such as the employer-justified retirement age.
According to the poll, 32 per cent of employers have not yet decide what form their retirement policy will take, while 38 per cent are undertaking reviews of other areas of the organisation likely to be affected by the implementation of the default retirement age.
A third of firms will be introducing training for sales managers and other leaders about how they can discuss retirement plans with staff.
Meanwhile, recent research carried out by Lumesse measuring people's job satisfaction found that the happiest workers in the UK are those who are nearing retirement or just embarking on their career.
