The benefits businesses can get from hiring an age-diverse workforce are immeasurable. The value of experience can not be overestimated, while utilising the skills and insights from a younger generation can keep your business relevant for decades to come.

This webinar delves into the benefits of hiring from the whole age spectrum – from the experienced baby boomers to the millennials, and all that’s in between – and highlights the importance of diversity in the workplace, avoiding unconscious bias and hiring for potential.

As part of the Victorian Small Business Festival,  in association with Biz Better Together, an Australian Chamber initiative, listen in on this powerful discussion on age diversity.
