East Anglia employers: Retain and support your midlife employees
A Midlife MOT drives retention rates for older workers.
It does this by providing an assessment that allows 45 to 55 years-old employees to review their work, wealth and wellbeing.
The assessment helps them make achievable plans for their later life.
Retaining older workers has never been more important.
The Midlife MOT is a Department for Work and Pensions initiative designed to respond to this challenge. It gives you the tools you need to be an age-friendly employer and offer dedicated support for your older workers.
Offering this free assessment your older works to gain clarity and confidence about how to shape their future at work and beyond.Employer Sign Up
Older workers are often a company’s most skilled and experienced employees and retaining them is crucial.
The Midlife MOT helps them stay in work for longer. This is the primary focus and benefit of the Midlife MOT.
This is achieved by helping employees understand why and how they should remain in work, including the financial benefits, help with work-life balance and ongoing continuous professional development.
Other benefits include:
- Demonstrating your commitment to age inclusivity in the workplace
- Developing a more skilful, motivated and productive workforce
- Supporting employee wellbeing across a range of important issues
- Reducing absenteeism through health support
- It’s free! Funding for the Midlife MOT is provided by the Department for Work and Pensions.
People cannot access their Midlife MOT without your involvement.
We are urging all employers to consider taking part in this important activity for the benefit of their workers and their organisations.
