In late 2016, unionlearn conducted a survey into mid-life development reviews and older workers to assess how unions were continuing to take forward this important agenda.

Evaluation and feedback from the 2013/14 government funded Mid-life Career Review pilots in which 15 unions participated found that unions were well placed to support individuals because of their unique network of active ULRs. Since the pilot stage unions have continued to be the largest provider of workplace mid-life career reviews.

This report highlights the survey findings and also includes examples of the effective ULR role in engaging employers and staff to meet the needs of mid-life and older workers.
