Age Positive

29 September 2011

Working in the Department for Work and Pensions in Sheffield and London and responsible for strategy and policies to support people making decisions about working and retirement. The Age Positive campaign promotes the benefits of employing a mixed-age workforce that includes older and younger people, encouraging employers to make decisions about recruitment, training and retention that do not discriminate against someone because of their age. They use publications, research, press, events and awards initiatives to get the message across - and to help employers work with the legislation to outlaw age discrimination in employment.
