THE CASE FOR AGE-INCLUSION IN A WORLD OF CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS - Report 

Population ageing and demographic change are impacting the way we live, work, and do business today. The combined impact of increasing life expectancy and falling birth rates is resulting in a shrinking labour market and skills shortages in many sectors. Consumption patterns are also changing. The International Longevity Centre UK[1] estimates that spending by over 50’s consumers may shift from 54% of total consumer spending in 2018, to 63% by 2040.

These fundamental changes in society call for a coordinated response from businesses, policymakers and individuals.

THE SOCIAL CEO INDEX REPORT (2021)

Receive your free copy of this revealing Social CEO Index Report. Membership organisations have come under great scrutiny in the last year, more so than ever before.

Members want to know that their organisation has real purpose, is making a real difference and delivering great value. Membership organisations want to be seen to be leading the conversations on the topics that matter most to their industry and their members.

At the heart of these organisations sits the Chief Executive. It is easier than ever to create content in an instant, meaning there is an abundance of content online and an increasing challenge to stand out and get the attention of our target audience. Add to this the declining trust in logos and increasing trust in people, it is more important than ever for employees and CEOs to represent their brands.

The Pandemic has given trade associations and professional membership bodies an opportunity to connect with their members, engage more with Government and other stakeholders and represent their industries during a turbulent time. There were many examples of Chief Executives receiving mainstream broadcast coverage and then sharing these stories on social media.

WHY TRAINING IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE ASSOCIATION MIX

For a membership organisation to thrive it needs to offer more to its members than just being a member. Training can be an essential part of this mix. This is because it responds to the need of individuals looking to develop their careers and companies to develop the skills of the workforce.
