As an employer, it's important that your people feel valued and invested in, whatever their age.
In Scotland we have an ageing workforce, and with no default retirement age, many people will choose to work for longer or instead choose to reduce their hours. As an employer looking to support your staff - what does this mean for you?
For any individual considering when to stop working there is more to consider than financial matters. Things like keeping active and healthy, legal matters and opportunities in adult education and volunteering are all important considerations. It's also an emotional time for people to adjust to a very different pace and structure in their lives. Our training aim to help people ask themselves the key questions to allow them to plan sufficiently for the transition into later life.
As an employer offering such support, it's one way to clearly demonstrate that you value the contribution that each of your staff members makes, and that you are committed to their wellbeing, regardless of age.
Additionally, funds raised by the Age Scotland Training Enterprises support the work of Age Scotland, Scotland's national charity for older people. In choosing to book a training course with us, you are helping to alleviate social isolation and loneliness among older people across Scotland. This is because all of the income generated by these workshops is reinvested in Scotland for the benefits of communities across the country. So, you not only benefit your people but the wider community too.
