inmyprime: for mature people and mature employers
in my prime is an organisation created to provide motivation, information and support to anyone over 50, or approaching 50; and to assist employers and other organisations to look more creatively at ways of employing and benefiting from the acknowledged strengths of older, mature workers.
On the one hand we are a specialist consultancy offering advice, strategic guidance and practical input to employers, marketing organizations and policy makers on issues relating to the employment and management of older workers, age diversity, age management, flexible working and the needs of the mature market.
Our aim here is to assist employers to benefit from the strengths and opportunities inherent in their older workforce, helping them to devise, implement and evaluate new ways of managing and developing what can often be a much under-utilised and under-valued resource. We also help policy makers and marketers to understand the aspirations, values and drivers of those who are fifty plus. And we help older and younger workers to work side by side in a truly intergenerational environment.
Our focus is much wider than age discrimination or pre-retirement planning. We believe that successful recruitment, retention and engagement of older workers comes from matching the unique needs of each business with the particular requirements and aspirations of older employees themselves, thereby creating new policies and practices that will benefit both.
The other side of what we do is to assist older people directly as individuals. We run all kinds of seminars, workshops and training courses to help people as they get older (not “old” but “older”) with their later life planning, pre-retirement planning, ongoing retirement planning or just thinking about the issues they will face as they move towards retirement. This may involve life planning in general and also personal financial planning and education.
As we mature and reach fifty or fifty plus so our lives might start to take on new directions. We can, these days, still expect to have as many as 50 years ahead of us and as we become older so we must make sure that we have in place the necessary building blocks for a healthy and happy later life. Whether this implies retirement, continued involvement as an older worker in an ever growing mature workforce or some balance between the two depends on our own aspirations and our anticipated financial well-being.
Through our courses and workshops we assist people to explore the various possibilities. Being over 50 and getting older, and everyone is becoming older all the time, should not be seen as the beginning of the end but as just another phase in our lives, as exciting and rewarding as any other.
We see ourselves as the number one port of call for the over 50s, mature and older workers, later life definition, retirement and pre-retirement planning, and relevant personal financial planning. Explore our sites in detail and see where they can help you in matters such as life planning, pre-retirement planning, work-life balance, flexible working, age discrimination, age diversity and age management.
