Event description

Description

30% of employees are already aged 50 or over and the younger workforce is shrinking. As people live longer and the population continues to age, older people have become the fastest growing group in both the workforce and customer base.

This interactive workshop will inspire participants to rethink tactics for boosting business success in an ageing world. It will consider business opportunities and challenges from demographic change and explore how age confident approaches with internal and external customers can help drive business performance.
Participants will leave with:
- Alternative thinking around shaping people management strategies for engaging older workers and inspiring the next generation of talent.
- The chance to grow an age-friendly reputation using simulation equipment to step into the shoes of a consumer expanding older market and improve the customer experience.
- An opportunity to become an ‘Age Confident’ recognised organisation

Speaker : Jane Barmer Co-founder Kingswood Age Confident
