In-Person Wednesday 06/14/2023 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Focus on an individuals capabilities and potential instead of of on their number (age). 

Ageism is the last of many discriminatory experiences to be addressed by the Human Resource community. Organizations continue to look for 'energetic' and youthful hires often described as 'digital natives' but bypass fully capable older individuals. Changing perspectives and bringing an understanding of the full potential of baby boomers to the workplace is critical as organizations face worker shortages in a post pandemic work environment. This presentation will focus on changing the paradigm and bringing a fresh approach to embracing older candidates to fulfill organizational workforce needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to audit Employment Branding and Recruitment materials to eliminate hiring biases.
  • Reeducating leadership with data on the value of older workers.
  • Sensitizing line management to their own biases toward older workers in the selection and promotion process.
  • Eliminating buzz words from daily vocabulary that unconsciously perpetuates ageism in the workplace.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
