Are you Serious about Diversity?
As it is for LGBT, gender and BAME, it is wrong, unjust and illegal to discriminate against age. Join our Champion advocacy and achieve the values and benefits of an age diverse work-force for your organisation, and you will be making a difference to address the global age diversity challenges.
Champion Age Diversity
We designed ‘Champion Age Diversity’, under the custodianship of Prime Candidate, and we now extend the opportunities with The Age Diversity Forum. The Forum is the global hub for age diversity in the work-place, and is a practical approach to ensure that organisations achieve the benefits and values of an age diverse work-force.
Unfortunately, there continues to be challenges in breaking down barriers of age in the employment arena. Whether that is in the form of: negative bias, unconscious or otherwise; a lack of opportunity for employers to access key skills and talent; poor retention and retraining programmes; or for policy support requirements. The Champion membership can support and drive strategy and values for all organisations.
No industry sector is immune to these challenges, and none are restricted by geography. We are a unique organisation with a vision for inclusion, to remove barriers through an application of practical service and best practice, and this is achievable, together with our Champion members.
As a Social Enterprise, we recognise the social and community benefits of driving employment equality, and we lobby and seek influence for continuous improvement for diversity and inclusion in employment opportunities.
We are raising the awareness of the values and benefits that an age diverse work-force can bring to organisations, of all size and sector. More and more companies are seeking to establish themselves as a committed employer for diversity, demonstrating those values, both for their internal landscape, as well as to the outside world.
Such values are highly prized, and now sought after in how business is transacted. Employers are fast becoming aware of the opportunity to trade and procure, coupled to social awareness. As a social enterprise, we offer a further route for organisations to demonstrate their attitude towards enhancement of social economies, that ultimately benefit everyone.
We are the only organisation offering a practical approach to meet the challenges, and achieve the values of an age diverse workforce, whilst providing a deeper and broader platform for change. Join our Champion advocacy and achieve the values and benefits of an age diverse work-force for your organisation, and you will be making a difference to address the global age diversity challenges.

Access Experience and Know-how
Through our Prime Candidate Service Division, we incentivise employing companies across all sectors, by offering special recruitment and transition packages. Whether you are a micro business, a large corporate, or a Charity, an older worker is likely to give you longer service than a younger counterpart, so giving you stability and improved retention, but also significant recruitment cost savings.
Working with Prime Candidate also recognises your CSR contribution. Adherence to an age diversity programme not only offers your organisation huge potential for effectiveness, efficiency and growth, but is critical to avoid discrimination and to meet corporate and social objectives.
