9 employers and job resources to pursue as an older worker


By Alex Valdes, Money Talks News

There’s a huge job market out there, and it’s not all reserved for the under-50 crowd.

There are many employers who value the experience, wide skill set and mature work ethic that older workers bring to the workplace.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for workers age 45 to 54 was 2.9 percent — and the rate for workers age 55 and older was 2.7 percent — as of February. That’s compared with an overall unemployment rate of 3.8 percent.

If you’re an older worker looking for a new job, or looking to re-enter the workforce, start your job search by considering the following age-friendly companies and job resources.


Employers

These companies are examples of the many employers that offer special programs for older workers or that have been recognized for otherwise age-friendly efforts:


1. CVS Health

The retail pharmacy giant launched its Talent Is Ageless program in 2017 — at which time the company said that 24 percent of its workforce was over the age of 50.

The goal of the Talent Is Ageless program is to recruit and retain workers who are 50 or older.


2. FCCI

About one-third of this insurance company’s workforce is age 50 or older, CNBC reported last year.

You do not necessarily need an insurance background to work at FCCI, which provides commercial property and casualty insurance through independent agents. Its careers webpage explains:

“FCCI has some positions that do not require an industry background. In addition, the FCCI School of Excellence offers learning opportunities for teammates to develop and grow. Job descriptions on the Openings page will specify requirements.”

FCCI is headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, but also has offices in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Texas and Virginia, according to a recent company announcement.


3. Goldman Sachs

The financial services company’s Returnship Program is a paid eight-week program for people who have been out of the workforce for two years or more.

Program participants are placed in one of the company’s many divisions, where they’re able to hone rusty skills and learn new ones.

As the Goldman Sachs website explains it:

“In the same way that an internship offers a guided period of exploration, a ‘returnship’ provides individuals with an opportunity to sharpen their skills in a work environment that may have changed significantly since their last experience as an employee. It also gives participants the ability to explore a new area of expertise and learn new skills.”

The deadline to apply for 2019 passed in October, so keep an eye out for the 2020 deadline this fall.


4. National Grid

of natural gas and electricity to Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and the United Kingdom was among a handful of companies that received an Age Smart Employer Award last year from the Columbia Aging Center at Columbia University. The awards recognize employers that value workers of all ages, including older workers.

“We are proud of our comprehensive compensation, benefits and well-being programs that respond to the needs of a multi-generational workforce,” said Keith Hutchison, National Grid’s senior vice president of U.S. human resources and chief diversity officer, in response to the award.


5. PKF O’Connor Davies

Roughly one-third of this accounting firm’s employees are older than 50, according to the Columbia Aging Center — which also recognized PKF O’Connor Davies with an Age Smart Employer Award last year.

The company boasts that it prioritizes creating flexible schedules and hires partners who are forced to retire from competing firms that have mandatory retirement ages.

PKF O’Connor Davies has 11 offices across five states, according to a recent company announcement. 


Job resources

These nonprofits and job-search aids offer programs for — or specialize in — connecting older workers with companies that are looking to hire such workers:


1. Encore.org

Encore.org is a nonprofit that aims to “leverage the skills and talents of experienced adults to improve communities and the world,” according to its website.

The organization’s Encore Fellowships program offers fellowships to experienced professionals who are seeking to enter or return to work in social purpose organizations. Participants are matched with organizations such as nonprofits and foundations based on their expertise.

Fellows earn a stipend that typically ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 for 1,000 hours of work. And according to Encore.org, 65 percent of fellows stay in the social sector as workers or consultants.


2. Operation A.B.L.E.

This Boston-based nonprofit seeks to provide employment and training opportunities to job-seekers who are age 45 or older in partnership with employers in Massachusetts and other parts of New England.

The services that Operation A.B.L.E. offers include occupational and computer skills training, job search training and support, coaching and counseling, and apprenticeships.


3. Interim Search Partners

is a staffing company that specializes in the behavioral health and substance abuse fields. The types of workers the company places include occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, social workers and management professionals.

Interim Search Partners also has a Hire Industry Retired Expert (HIRE) program, which is designed to help employers who are seeking to tap retirees specifically.

The company is based in St. Augustine, Florida, but works with employers across the country. 


4. Specialized job boards

There are job websites that specialize in positions for job seekers who are 50 or older.

Workforce50.com, for example, says that employers post positions directly to its Workforce50 Jobs board when seeking older and experienced workers.

RetirementJobs.com offers a Certified Age Friendly Employer (CAFE) program, which recognizes “organizations that are committed to being the best places to work for employees at or above age 50,” according to the website.
