ISS signs Age-Friendly Employer Pledge

ISS has joined the Age-Friendly Employer Pledge, as part of its commitment to providing diverse, inclusive workspaces.

The pledge, introduced by the Centre for Ageing Better, helps employers recognises the skills and experience of older workers – many of whom are overlooked even as the UK endures a skilled labour shortage.

Statistically, an applicant’s chances of employment drop significantly after the age of 55. Similarly, more than half of people eligible to work stop before state pension age.

ISS recognises that a multigenerational workforce helps businesses stay innovative with the insight and experience that only long-serving workers can provide. By signing the pledge, ISS commits to maintaining age-positive recruitment, flexible working solutions and a workforce that embraces diversity.

Ryan Redman, Workplace Deployment Manager at ISS, commented: “ISS is on a crucial journey in the UK&I to be the company of belonging, and we want our clients, employees, and communities to see us as a leading light in diversity and inclusion. We are proud to make the Age-Friendly Employer Pledge and excited to be recognised in this regard.”
