Age Inclusive Workplaces

Scotland's workplace demographics are changing

Embracing multi-generational best practice is more important than ever before.

A third of our workforce are now over 50 and there are twice as many people aged 65 years and over in employment in Scotland today compared to 10 years ago.  This number is set to rise as changes to retirement and state pensions make working beyond 65 more common. 

Diversity & Inclusion is high on the agenda of many organisations but age inclusiveness is not often a priority despite the fact that age diverse teams can be extremely beneficial in terms of experience and skills sharing.

How can Age Scotland help?

Age Scotland are experts in the whole spectrum of age-related issues and we are uniquely positioned to provide you with independent, practical, informed and legislatively accurate information helping you to create a workplace culture that is open, inclusive and positive about the benefits of age diversity.

Our Age Inclusive Workplace workshops are interactive and informative sessions that help people managers and employees to create age friendly organisations.

Based on insights from both employers and employees, our workshops capture best practice from the most forward-thinking organisations and cover a range of topics from age inclusive recruitment right through to enabling staff in mid-life to plan for their future.

We are now offering two of our workshops in an engaging virtual format.  Our Dementia Awareness workshop and our Planning For Your Future workshop can both be delivered remotely and have received great feedback from organisations and individuals who have taken part.

We were proud to be finalists of the 2019 Diversity Awards for the work we do in helping to create age inclusive workplaces.
