Training consultant and project manager John Allan provides a strategy for approaching the incoming age discrimination laws at all levels of business.
This is a blended programme to deal with age discrimination laws. It includes consultancy, interactive theatre, workshops and e-learning. It can operate at four levels, depending on an organisation’s size and structure:
Task – developing age diversity policy and strategy.
Services – consultancy and presentations, possibly using interactive theatre.
Task – HR policy, strategy and plan for training and dissemination.
Services – age-proofing HR procedures and designing a programme for training and communications.
Task – Briefing and training team leaders.
Services – Producing learning materials and running workshops.
Task – Compliance training and challenging stereotype views about age.
Services – delivering an e-learning programme supported by team meetings.
Although the longer term goal should be to implement an effective age diversity strategy, the short term priority for employers in 2006 is:
- To ensure that the organisation and all its employees comply with the new age laws
- To be able to provide evidence that the organisation has taken all reasonable steps through training to eliminate age discrimination in their employment practices.
