STIR: Unveiling the Power of Age Diversity in the Workplace

Tuesday, May 14th

With five generations in the workplace for the first time in history, companies are starting to consider age within their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion reporting. However, the 2022 EY US Generation Survey reveals that 1 in 5 workers have witnessed or experienced age-based discrimination but the benefits of tapping into intergenerational strengths, including unique backgrounds and perspectives, can enable businesses to future-proof their workforce.

Date: Tuesday, May 14th 
Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm BST
Location: ACCA, London

Research from 55/Redefined indicates ageism is still a reality for a large proportion of the workforce and suggests many over-55’s feel overlooked with quarter feeling compelled to retire earlier than desired. Its becoming increasingly beneficial for companies to explore strategies that harness the benefits of tapping into intergenerational strengths. Embracing diverse backgrounds and unique perspectives can empower businesses to fortify their workforce against future challenges.

Join BAB for this informative Panel Discussion, followed by a Networking Reception, aimed at challenging and changing the mindset surrounding age disparities in the workplace.
Our expert panel will explore the profound impact of generational differences, discussing how companies can leverage age diversity to enhance corporate resilience, actively support workplace equity, and ultimately improve employee retention.

The discussion will cover:

  • How the presence of five generations in the workplace shapes corporate culture and the challenges and opportunities it presents.
  • Strategies for training and development that challenge generational stereotypes and combine complimentary skillsets, fostering truly age-inclusive workplaces and addressing bias and discrimination issues.
  • Best practices for tailoring employee benefits to different life stages and understanding the human experience through a generational lens.
  • Developing innovative approaches to accommodate a productive and engaged seasoned workforce, harnessing their experience, and fostering meaningful mentorship programs in both directions.
