Valuing Britain’s Older Workers

Recent studies have shown that employers have assumed that older applicants are less creative, less productive, slower mentally and more expensive to employ than early or mid career employees. It has been found that none of these stereo types are true! When it comes to job performance older employees beat their younger counterparts hands down. Older employees have proven to be more productive within the workplace, loyal and more reliable.

Discrimination in the workplace

All workplaces consist of people who hail from different social, cultural and religious backgrounds. Occasionally, these differences may give rise to discrimination, regardless of the fact that the Equality Act 2010 protects you from discrimination in the workplace. Discrimination occurs in different forms based on characteristics, such as race, gender, age, religious beliefs and disability

If you believe you have been subjected to discrimination in the workplace. Please visit our drop in service or call our team of trained assessors on 01908 604475.
