Find out how Age Cymru and Business in the Community can support your business to be more age inclusive
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 consider inter-linked areas of your life and start planning for a positive future. These free webinars provide an overview of four keys areas: job/career, health and wellbeing, finance and work-life balance to help you feel more confident and informed about 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.
Benefits of attending a Mid-Career Review Webinar include:
- Opportunity to reflect and consider wants and needs for the future
- Enhanced confidence to focus on plans and make changes
- More informed on where to seek further guidance on relevant topics
- Increased resilience to deal with personal and professional challenges
- Help to improve health and wellbeing.
You can register for one or both of the webinar topics. Just click on the relevant link to register.

Once you register for the webinars, you'll be sent a link to complete a pre-survey. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey as it is a requirement from our funder for anyone who attends the webinars.
Please feel free to share these links with any friends or family (aged 50+) who you think may be interested as well.
There are many benefits of an age diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage employers to complete this FREE, online, self-assessment tool to help identify gaps and highlight strengths in relation to being an age-inclusive and age-friendly employer.
The questions in the Review are best completed by an HR or Diversity and Inclusion representative in your organisation. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and you will receive a bespoke recommendations report for your organisation.
By developing an effective age action plan, your organisation and its workforce can benefit from a better work-life balance, increased retention, enhanced staff engagement and more satisfied and productive workers.
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 Age-Inclusive Business Review. 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 Employer Toolkit
