15 years.

That is how long, enshrined by law, it has been prohibited for employers to unreasonably discriminate against employees on grounds of age in the UK. That legal protection started with the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 and was further developed by the Equality Act of 2010.

Yet what has really changed in that time? Has the mindset of employers fundamentally moved beyond the “skin deep” removal of overt age discrimination, e.g. in Job Ads, which often specified an age range (usually “25-35”!) Or beyond the examples set by parts of the retail sector, where it is now more usual than not to walk in a store where the wide range of age diversity is immediately evident?

The stories of older job seekers, even in a UK labour market of where job vacancies have hit 1.22 million, suggest there is still much to do 15 years on. Overt discrimination may be less evident, but that doesn’t avoid those silver job seekers feeling that they are less likely to make a shortlist, or for them to fear hearing the dreaded (and quite repulsive) word “Overqualified.”

So much Silver Talent available, so much of it overlooked or going to waste.

Our webinar will:

  •  explore current issues and success stories
  • review initiatives to balance age diversity
  • advise how businesses that serve or sell to the Silver market can ensure that their own workplaces reflect their customers

Can you afford, in every sense of that word, to risk being a loser in the war for Silver Talent? Let’s explore how your organisation can, once again in every sense, benefit from being a winner.

This 45 minute webinar will be run by Steve Huxham, Internationally known Recruitment & Direct Hire Strategist & HR Advisor
