Project Name: Older Workers Retention Resource Pack

Main Project Activities Delivered

  • The project has been designed to reduce inequality where older workers, with a sight loss condition, leave employment at the point of diagnosis or deterioration in their sight loss condition. RNIB Scotland, in partnership with the Marriot Hotel Group, developed an Older Workers Retention Resource Pack which has been made available, online and in print format, for employers across the whole of Scotland. The resource pack provides employers with information to ensure that they are offering the support that the employee requires and to encourage good communication between managers and employees, so that relationships don’t break down, and result in job loss.
