Cambridgeshire County Council’s 2006–2010 people strategy sets priorities and limits on age management of employees. It commits the council to encouraging and maintaining diversity in recruitment and promotion, letting of contracts, training, and in publicity for and access to services. To support age diversity in the workforce, the council has implemented a range of policies and practices open to the entire workforce, but that are likely to be of particular relevance and interest to older workers.
