The age a woman's career ends is revealed

The age a woman's career ends is revealed

Catchup News was disheartened but hardly surprised to learn that the fact that a woman’s career progression stops by the time she reaches 45 has been confirmed by the government’s champion for older workers. In a report for the Department for Work and Pensions, Dr Ros Altmann said she had been told that talent progression stops “around age 45” - for women, that is.“Older women face particular barriers in the workplace,” she writes. “For example, I have been told that talent progression for women stops around age 45. After that, the attitudes in the workplace usually change (for men it is said to be around age 55).” The report into ageism, which was released on Wednesday, said that helping older people back into the workplace could boost Britain’s GDP by up to £25bn. We’ve got to say that the fact that 45 year olds are being defined as ‘older people’ is probably the most depressing part of the study. Dr Altmann concludes that workers over 50 represent “a major untapped source of growth, a hidden talent pool that is available but so far under-used”. So if you were under the illusion that it’s only Hollywood that has an ageism problem, you might want to start looking closer to home.
