This week we were happy to celebrate National Employ Older Workers Week 2014. This is a nationwide US Department of Labor (USDOL) initiative that recognizes the value of mature workers and the critical role they play in a healthy and sustainable workforce. This is a familiar topic for us—every day, we see our program participants in the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) making substantial contributions to their communities through hands-on training at partner nonprofits. We see the lifetime of experience and skills that each mature worker brings, and it inspires, moves, and motivates us to keep helping them get back to work.
On that note— just a few of the employers who have hired our SCSEP participants this year include: Keurig Green Mountain, Swarovski North America LTD, and Western CT Area Agency on Aging. Do you know of a mature worker who might benefit from our services? Or, can we help you get back to work? Contact us!
