POSTPONED - Lunch and Learn [at Home] Series: Creating An Age-Friendly Workplace
This event will be postponed until the late summer or fall. Stay tuned for the new date.
Join us for the Changing the Narrative Age-friendly Workplace presentation that will highlight the benefits of leveraging older Coloradan’s talent, overcoming stereotypes connected to age, offer steps to improve access to the entire Talent Pipeline, and how this could improve your company’s productivity and profitability in today’s economy. Hear about the Certified Age Friendly Employer program and sign up for certification.
· As talent shortages hinder business growth, expansion and our ability to get work done, we need innovative solutions. Hiring, retaining and leveraging the strengths and experience of older Coloradans can be part of the solution.
· Research shows that older Americans are healthier, better educated and more technology-savvy than in the past. Additionally, their skills and experience, loyalty, and networks of professional contacts can be tremendous assets to our businesses.
· Learn about the Certified Age Friendly Employer program and the certification process – an initiative designed to identify and promote those organizations that are committed to be the best places to work for employees at or above age 50
