The 2005 award will be presented to an organisation that can demonstrate it is committed to achieving Age Positive practices in the workplace.
The judge will look for examples of best practice in the various stages of the employment process from recruitment selection, training and development, through to promotion, redundancy and retirement. Entries should include case material, examples of organisation literature or details of age-friendly initiatives focusing on one or more of the employment stages.
Age Positive is a Government campaign, spearheaded by minister for pensions, Malcolm Wicks, which is seeking to tackle age discrimination in employment and raise awareness of the business benefits of a mixed-age workforce.
