Attracting, Retaining and Developing Older Workers

This is the title of a breakfast briefing being delivered at 3 Albion Place, Leeds on February 9th. It's aimed at businesses and organisations that are actual or potential employers of older people. Thea Stein from Yorkshire Forward will be kicking it off. Barrie is chairing the session and will be giving the opening address followed by BT and Asda talking about the policies they have developed to maximise the benefits of employing older workers. BT is represented by Zulfi Hussein MBE who sits on the BT Regional Board and Asda are represented by Chris Stone and Kevin Trott from the Asda Communications and Policy Team. There will be a panel discussion and of course considerable opportunity to network and find out what other organisations are doing or planning to do regarding this topic. Maybe it is not something that you have yet begun to think about so this will be a good introduction. The briefing coincides with the publication of our new book and free copies will be available for attendees to take away with them. If you can come then please go to .
