Age Matters: Employing, Motivating and Managing Older Employees

Age Matters: Employing, Motivating and Managing Older Employees (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


From October 2006, age discrimination in employment and vocational training will become unlawful. The law will apply to all workers and to people who apply for work. This law will fundamentally change the way that age is currently used as a criterion for making employment decisions. Coupled with the unprecedented changes in the demography that will effect all organisations, employers will need to change practices and attitudes that are deeply embedded in their organisation. Keren Smedley and Helen Whitten's "Age Matters" provides you with a comprehensive, innovative and positive approach to the changes in the law and demography. The authors explain the advantages and disadvantages to the 2006 legislation and its effect on both retirement practices and pensions. Packed with statistics and perspectives on the ageing workforce (in the UK, EU and countries around the world), the book includes practical advice, models, exercises and training activities to help establish an appropriate response for your organisation. It is those organisations who can look beyond the legislation to manage the value in their older workforce that will thrive.

Use this book to understand the implications of demographic change and the employment law issues it raises; to help older employees identify, articulate and adapt to new ways of working; to enable both older and younger employees to work across the generations; and to build an age-inclusive culture. Covering virtually every human resources issue related to the ageing employment pool, this is a must-have resource for anyone involved in human resources, employment planning, organisational development, and training.
