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 and experts for National Older Workers Week where we will share insights and the latest best practice.

National Older Workers Week

In its second year, workingwise.co.uk has launched its #AgeDiversity campaign which includes National Older Workers Week, sponsored by Phoenix Group. Drawing on research and best practice, its aim is to help organisations develop policies and procedures that both attract and retain older workers and ensure their organisation is age diverse. We also provide advice, support and inspirational case studies which will help jobseekers improve their confidence during their job search. 

Join us for a series of events during the workingwise.co.uk National Older Workers Week (#NOWW22) from the 21st – 25th November 2022.
