Free Age Awareness and the Workplace training

15th February 2018

Delivered in partnership with Health Promotion Workplace Team, Age Scotland and Fife Voluntary Action.

This course aims to assist employers in understanding the issues regarding how their workforce relates to older working colleagues.

Age is a protected characteristic under the Equalities Act 2010 and changes to retirement and state pension rules are likely to result in more people remaining in employment beyond 65. Employers need to develop working practices that manage and support an age-diverse workforce.

Objectives of the course is to encourage employers to:

  • Consider appropriate engagement and communication with older colleagues and clients
  • Prepare managers and personnel staff for effective response should ageism become a “live” workplace issue
  • Develop strategies for minimising risk associated with age diversity, including legal compliance
  • Consider how to foster a positive working culture in which staff of all ages feel supported by both their employer and co-workers
