The Encore Network has launched a breakthrough resource to help employers engage older workers. Over the past 10 years, research has made a compelling case for the value of older workers, yet many employers haven’t received the message. This is partly because the research comes from scattered sources and, until now, has not been organized into an easy-to-use format. The Age-Friendly Employers Guide solves that problem, presenting a summary of key information with links to resources that enable a deeper dive. More information and the Guide can be accessed here.


Let us know what you think of the Guide. If you have suggestions for the Guide and how to get it into the hands of employers and others, we want to know about them by emailing Doug Dickson.


The Guide is designed for for employers, recruiters, diversity leaders, workforce development professionals, career counselors, business association leaders, and others. Help us connect the Guide to those groups through your networks. Check out ways to help spread the word about the Guide here.
