The Age Management Consultancy
PIONEERING. EFFICIENT. SUSTAINABLE.
WiseForce Advisors is an age management consultancy dedicated to re-define age in the workplace
The challenge is obvious.
Today, there are an estimated 727 million people over the age of 60, worldwide. In 2050, the share of older people in the global population is expected to have increased from 9.3 % in 2020 to 16%. So this means by 2050, 1 in 6 people globally will be aged 65 years or older. Fact is, our society is aging – and this holds huge potential for companies and organizations to establish a true competitive advantage that enables future growth.
Change begins with digging deeper to understand better

WiseForce introduces the AQ Methodology
A methodology designed to drive Behaviour Change in your company.
The AQ –Age Quotient – methodology is about creating awareness, nurturing a common understanding
and seeing the opportunities in the aging workforce being a strategic asset for organisations.
The Drift TM Phenomenon
Having worked across many companies, we have identified a pattern specific increasingly common amongst the 50+ generation: A gradual process where the older employees seem to drift from being an active part of a company to becoming a passive one. This often comes from a divergence of personal values and purpose away from the values and mission of the company. We call this ’The DriftTM and this is our core challenge to address.
To address this ubiquitous structural phenomenon, we’ve developed a pioneering holistic modular program targeting equally individuals and organizations. Its 3 phases are dedicated to enable not only an instant effect on well-being and team productivity but also an active and sustainable organizational, leadership and cultural change.
PHASE 1: Awareness & Assessment
The AMRQ TM
Determine the company’s AQ through our patented AMRQ (Age Management Readiness Questionnaire) evaluating the status quo on how you deal with aging within your company’s culture and organisational structure.
PHASE 2: Conduct & Coach
The ACP TM
The customised ACP (Age Catalyst Program) designed specifically for people over 50 aiming to encourage mindset change around future work contribution and impact, including our proprietary assessment, a reflective inquiry process, individual coaching and sustained learning.
PHASE 3: Effect & Extend
The AQ boost
Partnering with HR to co-create processes and policies that boost your company’s AQ through implementing scalable changes in organisational processes and driving tangible transformation of your corporate culture.
“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
