Everyone should be looking to create a workplace that is age friendly – at every age

With more over 50s likely to be in work than those under 30 in the next decade, employers need to act now to attract talented, experienced older workers to their organisations or they are likely to miss out.

Five actions to be an age-friendly employer:

  1.  Be flexible about flexible working
  2. Encourage career development at all ages
  3. Hire age positively
  4. Ensure everyone has the health support they need
  5. Create an age-positive culture
