Radis Community Care commits to National Older Workers Week and beyond

Radis Community Care has announced it is supporting National Older Workers Week by partnering with Rest Less to promote and encourage an older demographic in the workplace. 

National Older Workers Week aims to highlight the issues older workers face and inspires action by employers to promote age diversity and this year takes place between Monday 20 and Friday 24 November.

Currently, workers aged 50-years-old and above make up 34% of Radis’ total workforce. 

Through its partnership with Rest Less, the UK’s fastest-growing digital community for the over 50s, Radis has targeted and actively attracted applications from older employees wishing to have a career in care.

David Evans, Head of Talent Acquisition at Radis, said: “Older workers are a hugely important part of our workforce and bring valuable skills, experience and perspective to the table. With an ageing population, organisations must adapt to support the needs of every generation.  

“It’s important to us to continue to drive our attraction strategies and initiatives so we can be an employer of choice for this portion of the workforce and be recognised as an age-diverse employer.”

In addition to its work with Rest Less, Radis is showing its commitment to older workers by ensuring its own flexible remote and hybrid working, part-time working opportunities and in-house training opportunities. 

Its recruitment process is also being tailored to encourage over-50s to rejoin or stay in the workforce, by placing increased value on the skills and life experience that older workers can bring to their employment.

Stuart Lewis, Chief Executive at Rest Less, said: “The jobs landscape is changing and demand for older workers is increasing. Employers all over the country are working hard to review their existing policies and do the work to expand them so that they are relevant across all age groups in their organisation and not just the under 50s which is an encouraging change for individuals, businesses and society as a whole.”

Radis Community Care provides care to people of all ages and with a diverse range of disabilities, conditions and levels of need with a common goal to provide care that is tailored to the choices of each individual, so that they can lead an independent life.
