Your'e Never to Young or to Old
“You are old, Father William,” the young man said,
“And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head—
Do you think, at your age, it is right?”
Age may well be the most grossly ignored of the protected characteristics covered under the Equalities Act.
It is also one of the most fascinating.
Our Seminar will look at the issue of age and how that has and continues to influence the workplace environment.
It is distinctly possible that the explosion of technology and the seismic nature of the change it brings has facilitated the greatest divide in understanding between the generations
It appears that most people have missed this peculiar phenomenon that has now come into play.
This is important for a number of reasons, and we will explore this within the seminar.
We tackle issues around the assumptions we all make about age, from the cultural and societal forces that can consign older folk to the dustbin of history and younger ones to the realm of the insignificant, to the phenomena of a tech-savvy workforce with different social mores than previously held.
Respect your elders has lost its cache, and the future is more egalitarian on this front.
What does this mean for the workplace, and those who cannot keep up and engage in this changeful world, at whatever age?
Who the devil were Harold and Maude?
Are all mad scientists white males with frizzy hair, a grey beard and halitosis?
What has shaped our perception of age and how we view each other in the workplace today?
