Description

The Next Steps as part of York Business week

24 November 2017 #YBW2017 #YorkBizWeek2017


If you’re around 50 and considering your future or if you employ mature people don't miss this event.

Ambition, thirst for learning, search for stimulation and fulfilment doesn't just stop when a person reaches 50. There are parts of our society though who appear to be doing their best to close down their options.

We invite you to spend an inspiring, fun and stimulating morning with us and our fabulous keynote speakers in beautiful surroundings. Listen to our stories, explore your expectations, identify your options, challenge your assumptions and share your thoughts with like-minded people in the room.

What's your next step?

Why's it so important now?

“The Aging population” is a phrase on the lips of government, health services and organisations with an interest in economic development. And, most see it as a problem, not an opportunity. Whatever the view, it’s having a huge effect on the UK economy and our economy here in Yorkshire … not to mention our employers.

An increasing number of more mature people in our society are making life changing decisions about their future that have massive implications both for them and their families and the world of work. Like taking the cash and running from the workplace. Like giving up running successful businesses. Why are they doing it?

Many do it without fully considering the implications for them and their families. Some have an easy ride, though many struggle with this great big life transition. It can be exciting. It can be disorienting. It can be downright scary. Sadly, there are some people out there facing the same dilemmas who've had no choice but to leave.

Some employers and HR professionals are giving thought to how they can retain their experienced people. Some are giving thought to how they can help their people set themselves up for productive, enjoyable lives when they leave. The issue is not just about money, it’s about a desire to be happy as they begin to age with the sense of fulfilment and contentment that a purposeful life brings. Some employers are doing a great job. Some don’t know how.

Come and join the conversation. We look forward to seeing you there.

I'm delighted to say that The Bar Convent is generously sponsoring this event. Pencil some time in your diary, if you can, to have a look at their inspiring exhibition afterwards.
