What is Age Equity?
Age equity in the workplace refers to building a base of talent across the age spectrum to maximize cognitive diversity, increase innovation, and improve decision-making outcomes. Studies show that, like other forms of diversity, ensuring varying levels of skill and experience strengthens outcomes.
Why is Age Equity Important?
In the U.S., the average annual growth rate for workers aged 55+ over the next decade is projected to be three times that of the overall workforce. By 2024, 25 percent of the labor force will be 55 and older. (Bureau of Labor Statistics)
The number of over 65s in the U.S. is projected to nearly double over the next three decades, from 48 million to 88 million by 2050. (U.S. Census Bureau)
Between the ages of 60 and 70, the share of U.S. workers employed part-time increased significantly, from 15 percent to 45 percent. (U.S. Senate, Special Committee on Aging)
A study by PriceWaterhouseCoopers found only eight percent of companies with diversity and inclusion strategies included age as a dimension of focus when considering talent even though the benefits of doing so demonstrate strong positive outcomes. (PwC Global CEO Survey)
Almost two-thirds of U.S. workers aged 45+ have either seen or experienced age discrimination in the workplace. (AARP Research)
Our global team is committed to partnering side-by-side with communities, organizations, and business leaders to ensure age equity in the workplace, and to leverage the diversity of thought, experience, and cognitive thinking that benefits us all.
Our vision establishes age equity as a core value for every workplace, no matter how big or small.

Our goal is to offer targeted training and then facilitate your teams toward age-inclusive solutions. Our global team includes expertise in research, analytics, education, training, diversity and inclusion, change management, innovation, executive coaching, and marketing communications. Make us your trusted partner to unlock the potential of an age-inclusive employee culture.
HR managers see advantages of employees aged 55+ as additional experience (77%), maturity/professionalism (71%) and stronger work ethic (70%). The strongest applied skills of workers 55+ are professionalism/work ethic (58%), critical thinking/problem-solving (28%) and lifelong learning/self-direction (23%).Society for Human Resource Management. “SHRM Survey Findings: The Aging Workforce — Basic and Applied Skills”
