Age Inclusion in Your Workplace

Creating age friendly workplaces

We can help organisations to foster a positive working culture in which staff of all ages feel supported to achieve their potential.

Our Age Inclusion workshop looks at age bias in the workplace and helps intergenerational teams and their managers increase collaboration, communication and effectiveness.  The workshop aims to:

  • Raise awareness and knowledge of ageism among employees as a personal workplace responsibility.
  • Enable managers to respond effectively to ageism issues experienced in the workplace.
  • Minimise risks associated with age diversity in the workplace and ensure legal compliance.
  • Ensure staff of all ages feel supported by both their employer and co-workers.
  • Support employees who interact with older customers.

Workshop outcomes

  • Increased knowledge and awareness of age bias in the workplace.
  • Knowledge of how age awareness can increase communication, productivity and collaboration within intergenerational teams.
  • Line Managers enabled to get the most from their age diverse team, to respond effectively to ageism issues and to support them in their conversations with older staff members.
  • Awareness of how to ensure staff of all ages feel supported by employers and co-workers.
  • Awareness of age-related health issues.

The Age Inclusion workshop was extremely well received and I would happily recommend it to other organisations.

Head of Corporate Services, Scottish Information Comissioner.
