AARP Seeks 'Best Employers for Workers Over 50' before Feb. 15 Deadline
The application deadline for the annual AARP "Best Employers for Workers Over 50" list is fast approaching. Employers that offer workplace practices and policies that are friendly toward workers aged 50+ are encouraged to apply at http://www.aarp.org/bestemployers before Feb. 15, 2008.
The AARP Best Employers program recognizes innovative organizations that offer policies and practices that appeal to workers 50+, including flexible work options, training/learning opportunities, competitive health and retirement benefits, and age-neutral performance and appraisal systems. Now entering its eighth year, the program honored 50 employers last year.
Any employer with at least 50 employees and based in the United States is eligible to apply. This includes for-profit companies, not-for-profit organizations, educational institutions and local, state, and federal government bodies. Best Employers honorees will be acknowledged at a recognition dinner, which will be followed by an international conference addressing best practices among international companies.
