Age Diversity Removes Barriers

2019-09-04T08:56:32+00:00September 4th, 2019|News|

Here's the latest in the 'Postcard' video series from The Age Diversity Forum - Age Diversity removes barriers. There are a number of 'protected characteristics' in the diversity and inclusion agenda, including age, but unfortunately, age is still the one area that is largely overlooked. However, the inter-sectional nature of age diversity in the workplace, gives advantages, that enable barriers to be mitigated and removed, so providing opportunities for all. Applying such a focus can improve productivity and ensure that the return on investment gains are achieved....so making a focus on age diversity, not just the right thing to do, but actually, it's business imperative. We'll be showcasing the Age Diversity Forums 'Postcard' series here each week, so please keep 'em peeled for more!

Age Diversity leads to happier, healthier and higher skilled employees The latest from the 'Postcard' video series from The Age Diversity Forum - Age Diversity leads to happier, healthier and higher skilled employees.

But in some ways, it can be possible to measure such a dynamic outlook: with positive employee feedback; with reduced absences; and development plans that result in higher skilled and qualified staff. The combination of such activities and outcomes can improve innovation, productivity and performance, where the median expectation is to thrive!

Age Diversity Reflects your Staff and Customers

2019-08-07T11:46:28+00:00August 7th, 2019|News|

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9lJLhXxZus The latest 'Postcard' video from The Age Diversity Forum - Age Diversity Reflects your Staff and Customers A common challenge that we hear from organisations across all sectors and size, is to better reflect their customer base. A multi-generational workforce provides for a broad spectrum of skills and experience that enables a more comprehensive reflection of communities. Such foundations and know-how can be channelled to design product and services that engage with existing customers and to develop existing markets. This approach also offers a continuous improvement environment that can lead to new product and service development to enable access to new market opportunities.

The Age Diversity Forum’s Ops Director, Paul Owen, has contributed again to the older worker debate, this time, in the sector of tech and engineering, with an article from Dea Birkett for IET. And once again we find ourselves being the ‘myth busters’, as you will see in the following article, the (wrongly!) perceived notion that tech is just for the millennials. In fact, there is huge potential for tech and engineering organisations, to benefit from an age diverse focus: to blend technology and know-how; to retain key skills; to attract experienced talent; to expand market share and reflect a broadening customer base; to instil positive staff values that nurture and highlight improved performance; and to design for the age ‘global mega trend’. There is a specific mention of coding being age restrictive, well, The Age Diversity Forum is pushing the boundaries via it’s position on the D&I Advisory Board [...]
