Age Matters

Age Matters videos


Myths and stereotypes about older workers are often hidden and deeply entrenched. However, education, awareness raising and information can highlight misconceptions and help bring about changes in both attitudes and actions.

Age Matters is a project providing practical information and resources for employers on retaining and attracting older workers in a competitive environment.

The Media Resource Centre, working with the Equal Opportunity Commission, SafeWork SA, the Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology and the Office for Women, has created some short films to help inform the community, including workers and employers, about the benefits of employing mature age people.
