In November 2021 workingwise.co.uk held the first National Older Workers Week, sponsored by QA, with online events on different aspects of best practice and supporting older workers, from age discrimination and recruitment to managing multigenerational teams.
National Older Workers Week came after a turbulent year for older workers which began with worries about the impact of redundancy and furlough, given older workers were more likely in late 2020/2021 to have left work, been made redundant or taken early retirement and face more difficulties finding new jobs.
A survey published for the Week highlighted widespread perceptions of ageism in the recruitment process. Other studies showed a disconnect between employee perceptions and employer awareness when it comes to ageism. This brand new eBook covers all the discussions during that Week as well as employee and employer case studies, examples of best practice and calls to action to keep up the momentum.
