Top Employers Charter

Employers who sign up to our top employers charter are doing so as a statement of their commitment to fully embracing the business case for employing older workers, valuing their experience and ensuring they can continue to develop and progress their careers, with the support some might need around family and health issues.

What does the charter mean?

  • Having a commitment to openly supporting flexible working across the organisation and throughout the working life cycle
  • Having a commitment to treating older workers as equals, to stamping out age bias from recruitment onwards
  • Demonstrating a commitment to providing a diverse and inclusive workplace for all employees, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation
  • Being committed to enabling employees to develop and build their careers – whatever their working pattern and whatever their age, for instance, ensuring training is available and appropriate for all ages
  • Being aware of issues affecting older workers, such as caring responsibilities and health issues, and providing an open and supportive culture which enables employees to discuss these and get the help they need
  • Working towards other progressive and innovative practices and policies which support and educate employees (including age awareness programmes for line managers, for example)
  • Having an awareness of the benefits to organisations of these policies and practices
  • Sharing a commitment to the communication of the business benefits of flexible working to the whole organisation

Benefits to Charter signatories:

Signing up to the Top Employers Charter provides independent external recognition and a public statement that you are committed to being an employer of choice – committed to an age diverse and flexible workforce, thereby boosting your employer brand (both internally & externally) and providing competitive edge when recruiting & retaining talent.

The Charter is free to sign up. Contact us if you would like to find out how  your organisation can be involved.

The benefits of being a top employer for older workers include: improved staff engagement and retention throughout an employee’s working life; the ability to retain experience – both in work and in life – and to address skills gaps.

If you feel your organisation meets the above criteria, and would like to be added to the workingwise Top Employer Charter, please call our friendly team on ​0​208 432 6094 or email
