Nottingham hosts free public lecture on age in the workplace

The challenges and opportunities for supporting workers across the lifespan will be discussed at an open free lecture on Friday 8 January from 11:30 to 12:50 during the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology's annual conference in Nottingham.

The lecture ‘Age in the workplace: Research questions and opportunities for the future’ will be presented by Professor Donald Truxillo, Portland State University, and will also include an expert panel discussion.

During the lecture Professor Truxillo will share insights from his research on the effects of an ageing workforce and how employers can help maintain staff morale, wellbeing and performance. He will also discuss effective workplace solutions to address age differences and to develop age-sensitive HR systems.

Professor Truxillo’s talk will be followed by a panel discussion on age in the workplace. The panel will take questions from the audience and be chaired by diversity, assessment and development specialist, Professor Binna Kandola. Alongside Professor Truxillo, the panellists will include leading thinkers from industry, charities and age-related government initiatives.

This event is of particularly interest to members of age-related charities and campaigning organisations, HR professionals and anyone else interested in learning about the challenges and opportunities for supporting workers across the lifespan.

Entrance to the lecture is free but pre-booking is required as places are limited. To register your place please email the Conference Team with your name and telephone number. 

The lecture takes place during the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology's annual conference being held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, NG7 2RJ.
