Oakleaf Partnership joins ProAge as a Founding Member 

Workers over 50 are the fastest growing age demographic of the UK labour market, growing by just over 4 million in the period 1992 to 2022 according to figures from the Office for National Statistics. Yet, research from the Centre for Ageing Better reveals that one-in-three people aged over 50 believe they have been turned down for a job because of their age and one-in-five employers believe that age discrimination occurs in their organisation.

“We need to tap into the skills and experience of workers over 50, if we are to address the skills shortages experienced in many sectors of the economy today. Being an age-inclusive employer helps us attract and retain the talent we need to innovate and grow profitability. As an organisation specialising in HR recruiting, we believe we can make a big difference changing the culture of organisations across the country by supporting ProAge in raising awareness about the need for greater age inclusion in the workplace.” says Richard Colgan, Founder and CEO Oakleaf Partnership.

“We have been working with Oakleaf Partnership for the past several months on our project to Map the Way Forward to a Multigenerational Workforce and are proud to have them join us as one of our Founding Members. Their support has been invaluable in convening organisations that are committed to becoming more age inclusive. We look forward to working with them more closely in the future.” says Mike Mansfield, CEO ProAge.
