Welcome to the 2008 AARP International Innovative Employer Awards.
These awards are intended to recognize non-U.S.-based employers who have demonstrated innovative workforce or human resource practices that address issues relevant to workers age 50 and older.
At a time when the percentage of workers age 25 to 44 is declining, older adults are a more important component of the global workforce than ever before—a fact that select employers are recognizing and implementing policies to address.

Several collaborating organizations with expertise on age and employment issues, from around the globe, joined AARP in promoting and designing this award including: TAEN–The Age and Employment Network (United Kingdom); The Gerontology Institute at Dortmund University (Germany); Council for Third Age (Singapore); National Trades Union Congress (Singapore); the Singapore National Employers Federation (Singapore); and NIKKEI (Japan). … Back to Article
