Did you know that surveys by both the government and charitable organisations show that age bias is the most common form of employment discrimination? Older workers may be unfairly refused a promotion, whilst younger workers may receive lower rates of pay – despite having all the relevant skills and experience.

Age discrimination is, of course, illegal – and complying with the law is a key reason for eliminating workplace-related age discrimination. But there are other good reasons:

  • The benefits that result from providing a diverse workplace
  • Within the next twenty years people over the age of fifty will make up almost one-third of the workforce, so any discrimination against this sizeable minority will greatly reduce the available pool of talent available to an organisation
