Many of us derive benefits (e.g. financial, social, giving us purpose) from continuing to work for as long as we can. Sadly, many organizations, intentionally or unintentionally, make it difficult for us to do so. Recently I came across these tips on how to Become an Age-Friendly Employer, provided by the UK based Centre for Ageing Better.
There is also a free download and research paper which drill deeper into these ideas. The good news – most of these ideas aren’t expensive to implement. It does, however, require a change in perception by realizing that creating an age friendly work environment benefits older people and the organizations.
