A group of people in a divers workplace

age leadership team


The purpose of Business in the Community’s Age Leadership Team is to help and challenge employers to retain, retrain and recruit older workers and to create multi-generational teams where people of all ages can flourish.


  • The business case: to raise the profile of the ageing population and workforce as a business-critical issue and promote the benefits of a multi-generational workforce
  • Age-friendly employment practices: to inspire and help companies to take action to become more age friendly
  • What works: to develop an evidence base for recruitment practices, measure to support the retention of older workers, and strategies for retraining

Chaired by Andy Briggs, Chief Executive Officer, Phoenix Group, and Government Business Champion for Older Workers
