Age-Inclusive Business Review

Missing media item.


We are all living for longer, which means that the majority of us are likely to be working for longer too. In Wales, one third of the workforce is aged 50 or over and by 2023, half of all adults in the UK will be over 50 years old.

Both your customers and your workforce are ageing.

So, recruiting, retaining and retraining older individuals in the workplace is essential for businesses and the wider economy. Businesses need to take action now to prevent early exit from the workplace, support later life working and make the most of benefits of intergenerational workplaces.

Business in the Community’s (BITC) Age-Inclusive Business Review is a free, online, self-assessment tool to help identify gaps and highlight strengths in relation to being an age-inclusive and age-friendly employer. It will take approximately 25 minutes to complete, and you will receive bespoke age-inclusion recommendations for your organisation.

Questions and associated recommendations fall under four key themes: Financial Wellbeing; Health and Wellbeing; Work-life Balance; and Workplace Practices (i.e. recruitment, retention, retirement, training).

By developing an effective age-inclusive action plan, your business and its workforce can benefit from a better work-life balance, increased retention, enhanced staff engagement and more satisfied and productive workers.

Business in the Community Cymru in partnership with Age Cymru are delivering the Age at Work Programme, supporting businesses to create workplaces where older workers can thrive.
