The Company at the Forefront of Supporting and Developing Over-55 Workers

In this episode of the 55/Redefined podcast, we sit down with some of the Azets team to discuss the importance of over-50 employees and fostering people-led intergenerational teams.

"[Attracting over-55s into the business] is vital to the development of our people and the growth of our business," says Caroline Hutchins, Chief People Officer at Azets.

In this episode of the 55/Redefined podcast, we sit down with some of the Azets team - Caroline Hutchins and Paul Clifford, Regional CEO for the Central Region - to discuss the importance of over-50 employees and fostering people-led intergenerational teams.

Azets offer international accounting, tax, audit, advisory and business services both digitally and at the door of their clients. Their focus is the SME market, providing clients with a broad range of business services, saving their precious time so they can focus on what they do best. Azets are one of the first employers to pro-actively encourage over-55 applicants in all areas of their business, plus they have created a returners programme to attract retired accountants, tax advisors and professionals back to work on a part-time or temporary basis to support peak-periods.

55/Redefined CEO, Lyndsey Simpson, asks today's guests about the Azets return-ship programme that supports over-55s returning to the workforce with flexible working arrangements as well as offering support and development opportunities.

This is a great episode that explores the value of over-55s in the workplace, the importance of fostering intergenerational teams and also dives into why a people-led culture with collaboration and inclusion at its heart is key to happy and successful workplace for both employees and clients.
