A new Mid-Life MOT service, a ‘one stop shop’ online platform containing free services and tools for both individuals and employers, has been developed and published by The Humber LEP, in conjunction with local partners at the National Careers Public Health England and Active Humber.
The MOT tool invites individuals to look at not just their finances, but also their health, wellbeing, and skillset, while it encourages employers to support those aged 45-plus in areas such as flexible working, pension evaluation and ensuring they are an ‘age-inclusive’ employer.
The platform highlights and redirects both individuals and employers to existing tools and services which not only offer key advice but lead the way to activities and simple steps towards meaningful action and change.
Local users will be able to access tools such as HR advice and ways of supporting an older workforce. Likewise, employees and individuals will be able to access tools to assess their finances, any upskilling opportunities, career progression possibilities or any lateral moves into growing industries in the Humber.
