Become an Age Inclusive Accredited Employer
Age Inclusive employers play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better and challenging age discrimination. They are changing behaviour and cultures in their own businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.
This scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, and:
- Draw from the widest possible pool of talent
- Improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that you treat all employees fairly and will continue to create new opportunities or flexibility for your workforce as they grow older
- Demonstrate your commitment to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) initiatives building a sustainable, resilient, and purpose-led organisation.
It also helps customers, prospective employees and other businesses identify those employers who are deeply committed to equality in the workplace.
To be an Accredited Age Inclusive Employer, you will commit to these 4 actions:
• Ensure recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible to workers over 50
• Communicate and promote vacancies fairly
• Review HR Handbook & Policies relating to retirement
• Invest in technical training and re-skilling of this age group
