Recommits to Hiring Across an Age Diverse Workforce

Concord Hospital recently signed AARP’s Employer Pledge recognizing the value of experienced workers and recommitting to the value of hiring across an age-diverse workforce.

Given employers’ need for talent, it makes great business sense to hire experienced workers, as demonstrated by AARP research.

Robin Moore, Concord Hospital’s Chief Human Resources Officer said “Having a multigenerational workforce adds significant value to what we do and can give us an edge over competitors. Different work and life experiences from employees help make us a better, stronger organization.”

AARP Vice President for Financial Resilience Susan Weinstock said “We’re thrilled that Concord Hospital has signed AARP’s employer pledge. We know that employees and employers succeed when they remain committed in words and in action to hiring and maintaining an age-diverse workforce.”

AARP’s Employer Pledge reads “We believe in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age, and that 50+ workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs. Recognizing the value of experienced workers, we pledge to recruit across diverse age groups and to consider all applicants on an equal basis as we hire for positions within our organization.”

AARP’s Job Board and other employer resources connect 50+ job seekers with employers like Concord Hospital and hundreds of other employers who recognize the value of experience.
