This dinner will provide an opportunity for HR Directors to learn about the ageing population and age bias, and discuss this impact of demographic change on their own organisation. They will hear how leading employers are taking steps to retain, retrain and recruit older workers.
However, our research found there are a Missing Million people over 50 out of work, but who want to work if the right opportunities were available. Of those over 50 who leave the workforce early, the most common reasons are a lack of appropriate skills, redundancy, caring responsibilities, health conditions, and age discrimination. Business must take action to challenge age-stereotypes, support older workers’ needs, and enable longer working lives.
The evening will include a drinks reception, followed by a sit down dinner and a roundtable discussion under the Chatham House rule. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk about how to retain and recruit older workers to ensure that businesses have people with the skills they need.
This event is designed to benefit HR Directors/Chief HR officers/Personnel Directors/Chief People Officers and is free for members of Business in the Community.
