Age at Work

Age Cymru wants to encourage and support businesses to build age-friendly workplaces where older employees can thrive. We have formed a partnership with Business in the Community (Cymru) to support employers through the Age at Work programme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Mid-Career Review Webinars

More than 50% of us haven’t thought much about our hopes or ambitions for life after 60. Yet a high sense of control over this life transition results in better outcomes once in retirement.

Business in the Community’s Mid-Career Review Webinars offer an opportunity for you to reflect and take stock of where you are now, where you’d like to be and what steps you can start to take to plan for the later life you want. They provide an overview of four keys areas: career, health and wellbeing, finance and work-life balance to help you consider what informed choices you may want to make. The webinars are part of the Age at Work programme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and you must be aged 50 and over and either in employment or actively seeking employment to participate. 

We encourage you to register for one date for the Career, Health and Wellbeing and one date for the Finance to get the full overview and information, but it isn’t essential. Just click on the relevant link to register.

Business Age Inclusive Audit

There are many benefits of an age diverse and inclusive workplace. Business in the Community encourages businesses to use this self-assessment age audit tool to identify gaps in relation to being an age-inclusive and age-friendly employer. It will help assess how friendly your business is in relation to supporting your older workers; and you can use the results to help you develop an age inclusive action plan. The Age at Work programme manager will review your completed self-assessment and send you a short, bespoke report with suggested actions and other support available.

By developing an effective age inclusive action plan, linked to your wellbeing strategy, your business and its workforce can benefit from a better work-life balance, increased retention, enhanced staff engagement and more satisfied and productive workers. The Business Age Inclusive Audit is offered free as part of the BITC’s Age at Work programme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and delivered in partnership with Age Cymru. Your business can access and complete the Age Inclusive Business Audit

Age Inclusive Toolkit

This Toolkit provides a guide for employers to support staff over the age of 50 in relation to 4 key areas: Financial Wellbeing, Health and Wellbeing, Work-life Balance and Workplace Practices and complements the Business Age Audit. Although primarily developed for older workers, this Toolkit contains recommendations for good practice that can be utilised and applied to all staff, regardless of age. If your business would like a free e-copy of the Age Inclusive Toolkit, please complete this simple form – Wales Age Inclusive Toolkit
