Age and Work

Knowledge makes resources mobile. Knowledge workers, unlike manufacturing workers, own the means of production: they carry their knowledge in their heads and therefore can take it with them. At the same time, the knowledge needs of organisations are likely to change continually.

— Peter Drucker

Our Age and Work programme

This programme supports businesses, and their people adapt to the ageing workforce. It takes a strategic, whole-of-organisation, life-stage approach to creating an engaged and inclusive age-friendly culture in your workplace. Mature workers have a wealth of knowledge and can help develop your future leaders. Effectively utilising your team can bring significant savings in training costs.

Short Courses for Employers, Managers and People Leaders


Engage – working with an ageing workforce

Mature aged employees are staying on at work from choice and through necessity. This is bringing challenges, risks, and opportunities for employers.

This half-day workshop will introduce you to the realities and provide you with a framework for engaging with the changing face of your workplace

Converse – having an effective life stage conversation

Employers want to be able to talk with their employees about their intentions but back off for a variety of reasons. Mature aged employees want a conversation if approached in a respectful way.

This practical “how to” half-day workshop provides you with the skills and knowledge required to talk positively with your staff.

Creating an Age Inclusive Workplace- your key to increased productivity

In the not-too-distant future, if not now, your workforce could include four generations with employees ranging in age from their late teens into their 70’s. Research has found that high levels of productivity are associated with diverse workforces. That includes age diversity.

In this half-day workshop, we will explore what it means to create an age-inclusive workplace and identify simple things every employer can do.

Life Stage Short Courses for Employees


Create – take charge of your future

Mature aged employees are staying on at work from choice and through Is it time for a mid-life and career review? People often reflect on what they wish they had known in their 30’s and 40’s. But somehow life was just full on – the ‘rush hour of life’. Yet we know that this stage in our lives is when the building blocks are put in place for the future. Why not a half-day mid-career check-up workshop?

Revitalise – re-energise your career

Reaching the age of 50 you may still have another 15 – 25 years of working life. This half-day workshop is for you if you want to take time out to reflect on where your career has come from and what the next stage might be. New options are opening up as we take up the benefits of increased longevity.

Explore – your future beyond work

The evidence is that fewer than twenty per cent of people have plans in place for a future beyond work. Many are confused and scared. So they procrastinate. This workshop is for you if you are over 50 and want to start thinking about the future.
