5. How much do you think your products or services take older people into account when being produced or sold?

If your score is below 25, don’t despair — our toolkit can help your organisation be more age-friendly. Use the Chatterbox tool to start a conversation about ageing in your workplace and then work through our toolkit from the beginning.

If your score is between 25 and 39, your organisation is on the way to being age-friendly. Consider using our assessment tools to highlight the age-friendly gaps in your organisation and devise solutions. You can also look at your lowestscoring questions and read about the corresponding sections in the toolkit.

If your score is between 40 and 50, congratulations! Your organisation really understands age-friendliness but there’s always room for improvement. Check out the Evaluation section of our toolkit and make sure you’re looking for ways to build on the good work already happening.
