Ageism is so old-fashioned!
People in the UK are living longer and the proportion of older workers in the work force is increasing. Hence; as this trend continues, employers will need to draw on the skills of older workers more often, retaining them, retraining them and recruiting them into a diverse range of available roles.
Greydient Jobs is a recruitment platform and business consultancy at the forefront of this initiative.
Championing equality and inclusion for candidates aged 45+, our main aim is to increase the quality of their applications and in turn help businesses and organisations fulfil this talent pool’s potential in a multi-generational workplace.
We have a variety of different solutions to help companies maximise the opportunity here and they include;
- HR Auditing to help internal teams Rethink their older worker strategy
- Retain & Retrain consultancy and training programs
- Recruitment options on our online platform and within our agency
Norwich has been a key city in Greydient’s birth, development and early success. The senior team at Greydient wanted to operate a “local first” strategy and we choose Norwich due to it’s strong mix of SME businesses and large corporates and it’s broad database of older workers.
We have also seen that education around ageism and the multi-generational opportunity has been slow across geographies and sectors, so we are delighted that Greydient can provide the expertise and platform to help build Norwich into a pioneering age friendly business community.
We are delighted to have joined the Norwich Chamber of Commerce too, as this will give us the opportunity to develop closer ties with local businesses and have the ability to network with them at a variety of excellent events and forums.
