Take George, who was made redundant in his 50s and wanted a less stressful job closer to home, but found it difficult to be taken seriously in interviews.

Many people make assumptions and have misconceptions about people like George, which have nothing to do with George, himself, and everything to do with his age. Would your staff be able to look beyond this prejudice and see George, the individual?

More and more organisations are reaping the business rewards of a mixed-age workforce. Make sure yours is one of them.
