"Re-employment of the Elderly" Survey 2023

Golden Age Foundation believes that "elderly re-employment" will become an important part of Hong Kong's social development, providing more life choices and opportunities for the elderly. Therefore, we conducted a survey on "Re- employment of the Elderly" in the hope of providing the public with more relevant information and promoting their attention and support for this issue. In addition, we hope that various sectors can work together to propose relevant policy recommendations and improve the problem of age discrimination in Hong Kong's workplace, which will help the golden generation realise their self-worth, and continue to participate actively in social and economic activities after retirement.
