Good Recruitment Guide for Older Workers

The Centre for Ageing Better, in partnership with REC and CIPD, has published a guide on Good Recruitment for Older Workers, based on their Good Recruitment for Older Workers (GROW) project findings. This guide is designed to help organisations recognise the issues that age discrimination causes in the recruitment process and provide practical ways for employers to become more age inclusive.

For more information and key findings download a copy of the GROW guidance to share with your business. The guidance also contains information and advice on the principles companies should apply to encourage age-inclusive recruitment as well as practical recommendations.

By following the principles in the guide employers can improve their work forces through recruiting inclusively and building a multi-generational workforce. The guide is designed to help organisations recognise the negative role that age-related discrimination plays in recruitment processes and provide practical suggestions for employers to become more age-inclusive 

We know that 36% of 50-70 year olds feel at a disadvantage applying for jobs due to their age. This recruitment guide sets out five key actions to help organisations become more age-inclusive.
