The population is ageing: by 2030, half of all adults in the UK will be over 50 years old. The workforce is also becoming more age-diverse, with up to five generations working alongside each other for the first time. Generations have different ways of making sense of the world, due to coming of age in different social, political, economic and technological contexts, and therefore they may have different ways of approaching problems and decisions. This diversity of thought can be leveraged for business success.
This toolkit will guide and support in getting started with age inclusion in the workplace and includes a three-step process based on Look, Listen, Act.
Business in the Community Age Campaign
The age partnership offer has been created to support employers to respond effectively to the ageing population and the needs of older workers, and to leverage the benefits of effective intergenerational working.
