Mike’s Twitter bio says it all: “Missed the retirement memo.” He’s applied his corporate communications expertise to his encore role as the Elevate Leadership and Workforce Development Training Coordinator for Larimer County’s Economic and Workforce Development Department. Mike co-created a short film, Profit from Experience, that highlights the benefits of older workers. His efforts resulted in an Innovation Grant award to educate local employers about the many benefits of cultivating an age-diverse workforce, and to pair adults 55+ who have been adversely affected by the pandemic due to loss of income or educational opportunities with paid internship opportunities leading to sustained employment.
