CAREER DEVELOPMENT BECOMES MORE IMPORTANT AS WE AGE

helping employees to age better


The prospect many organisations now face is supporting employees who may have worked with an organisation for 20+ years - and now have to work for longer. We can help engage and support them whilst providing a place for them to share their skills and expertise to give back to others.

Working with us sends a strong message that you believe in and value ageing talent.

HOW?

Different organisations have different drivers. We offer tailored solutions to cover:

- Workforce transformation: you want employees who are more engaged and agile. They want this too.
- Reimagined and radical outplacement support: sometimes internal mobility is sadly not an option.
- Age positive employer: send a signal you are the employer of choice for people as they get older.

Prices start at £30 per employee per year.

100% of our fees support Charities, Community Interest Companies and Micro Businesses.

WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES

WHY WORK WITH US?

cost savings

Over half of employees over 50 leave organisations prematurely - at a cost of £30K per head.

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE

Ageism is rife. Signal your organisation as a leader not a follower.

BUSINESS
GROWTH

Roughly 1/3rd employees are coasting. This growing talent pool needs investment

cORPORATE
REPUTATION ‍

How you treat employees matters. Give them the best whilst giving back to society.

53% of employees want to make changes to their work, and Covid-19 has accelerated this. Are you ready?

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM

With longevity increasing, people have to work for longer but...


• Older workers are 4.2 times less likely to be called to interview than younger colleagues
• The older demographic care more about learning opportunities - but typically receive the least investment
• Following covid, the over 50+ demographic is the one most targeted for redundancy.
• 45% employees want to change career, but over 70% don't know what they want to do next.
• Over 80% of people 50+ are anxious and worried about their future.  

SUPPORTIVE ORGANISATIONS

Our supporters provide valuable input into our work, in the form of sharing employee insights, specific research, collaboration on pilots, and commitment from senior leaders. We are proud to share the organisations who are helping shape the new career deal.

CASE STUDY

We worked with the Financial Services Compensation Scheme to support their ageing workforce think about their career development opportunities.

FSCS are a progressive employer of choice and are leading the way, having won multiple awards for being the leading investors in people.

David Blackburn, Chief People Officer, has championed this work at the FSCS and is supportive of the work we are doing at Brave Starts.

Through us, we have enabled their employees to work on passions outside of their core work, to enable them to lead fuller longer working lives.

DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT..

"If we aren't offering a job for life, then we should be supporting employees with help and guidance towards their next role.
I want everyone at FSCS to enjoy and love their work.
We recruit and support those coming in at 50+ but likewise, we support those who are ready for a change and want to leave.
If their career is best served outside - why not support that?
