If you’ve landed on this page, you’re curious about how your organization can be one where all employees can thrive in every phase of their careers without encountering age or generational biases.

The issue has never been more pressing. In a recent AARP study 1, 83% of employers said that creating a more multigenerational workforce would drive their success and growth. They believe that their organizations need to do more to maximize the full potential of an age-diverse workforce. In fact, these executives highlighted age as a top area of diversity management that requires the most improvement.

This creates major opportunities for employers, who now consider it a key business strategy to address the needs and unleash the synergies of a workforce that can span as many as five generations. C-suites nationwide are now working directly with their employees to build solutions that work for all, and ERGs are a key tactic to use.

You’re holding a powerful Toolkit that you can use to leverage your Employee Resource Groups (affinity groups, or BRGs) to build the careers of your employees across all ages and career phases. You don’t have to be the CEO or Head of HR to use this kit. You can use it as a staff member, a manager, a senior leader, or someone in the HR team. The Tools here can be
used by organizations of all sizes, from 25 employees to over 25,000. They can be adapted for organizations with all types of employees and all industries.

You can use this Toolkit to:

  1. Win buy-in from key influencers in your organization to engage your ERGs around age inclusion,
  2. Start a new Intergenerational ERG, or
  3. Build a specific initiative about age inclusion across all your current ERGs.

The kit has everything you need to design and build a successful first year of your initiative. Get started and download the Toolkit today.
