Response to Aviva report on age discrimination in the workplace

New Aviva report shows more than a third of employees believe there is age discrimination in their workplace.

Our Director of Evidence, Claire Turner, says employers must better support their older workers and eliminate age-discrimination in the workplace. 

Claire Turner, Director of Evidence, Centre for Ageing Better, said:

“It’s really positive that many people in their 50s and 60s want to carry on working. Good quality work can provide a sense of meaning and purpose and enable people to save more for later life.

“Older workers can bring a wealth of skills and experience that are incredibly valuable. With skills and labour shortages predicted in future, employers will need to recruit, retain and support those older workers if they want to remain competitive.

“But this report reinforces that too many people still face age discrimination and feel their employers don’t value their contributions.

“Employers must better support their older workers, eliminate age-discrimination in employment practices and deliver progression and development opportunities for everyone, regardless of age.”
