For the penultimate episode of this season of the podcast, we once again get great practical advice with Ben Falk and Mandy Garner.
This week is National Older Workers week, so Ben and Mandy start the fifth episode of Mums.Dads.Work discussing how employers can pay better attention to the age diversity of their employees and support them in every stage of life.
They are then joined by midlife career transition specialist and author of Dancing with fear and confidence: How to liberate yourself and your career in mid-life, Laura Walker, who explains how to approach a career change in mid life. People often don’t know where they want to go, and managers don’t know how to help people, so Laura explains why some people might want to go through a career transition in mid life and how to go about making a change. She also tells Ben and Mandy about if there are any differences in how men and women approach mid career transitions.
To end the episode, Ben and Mandy discuss how the cost of living crisis is impacting workers, and whether there is any hope for potential future changes to legislation that could help support them.
Thanks for listening, Ben and Mandy will be back next week for the final episode of the season, see you then!
