Why now is the time for #AgeDiversity

Multigenerational teams are good for business; they bring a breadth of experience and viewpoints. As the population ages, organisations will need to have the policies and procedures that both attract and retain older workers and ensure their organisations are age diverse. Join us for National Older Workers Week where we will share best practice and celebrate success.

workingwise.co.uk has launched it’s #AgeDiversity campaign, which includes National Older Workers Week, that aims to help organisations manage multigenerational teams and ensure any possible ageism is eliminated.

With people working longer, the workplace is becoming more multigenerational, with the average workplace now spanning an unprecedented four generations. This brings many benefits in terms of knowledge and skills sharing, but it also means employers need to work harder to ensure all age groups feel included and valued.

Join us for a series of events during the workingwise.co.uk National Older Workers Week (#NOWW21) from the 22nd to 26th November 2021 where we will take a look at best practice during the recruitment process and identify how organisations, with the right policies and culture, can attract and retain older workers. We also have an event for candidates where we will be celebrating success and providing future career advice.

Who should attend

Line Managers who are responsible for teams. Directors, HR and diversity leads will also find value being part of this event.


The workforce is now made up of four different generations and managing multigenerational teams in an inclusive way that gets the best out of everyone can be challenging.

This event will bring together those organisations that have successfully managed multigenerational teams. They will share the challenges they have faced and how these have been overcome, whether that is combatting ageism – both against young and old – in their processes and policies or promoting lifelong learning.

Areas of focus will include:

  • Reverse mentoring
  • Midlife MOTS
  • Flexible teams
  • Tackling ageism
  • Managing workers with a range of different needs

Celebrating Success

Who should attend

Older workers looking to progress their career in their current role or change careers completely.


Our final event will be for the candidates themselves. This will be a coming together of older workers to share their experiences. An uplifting event to help older workers to feel valued. We will also be joined by John Lees, career strategist and author who will offer advice for those who wish to change their careers or progress further in their current role.
