Winner: 2008 AARP Best Employers for Workers Over 50

For its full- and part-time employees, the health system provides on-site care for children, grandchildren and elders; backup care for children, grandchildren, and elders; and referral services to help employees find care for children, grandchildren, and elders.

Benefits/Alternative Work Arrangements: Jennings offers the following alternative-work arrangements to its full- and part-time employees: flextime, job sharing, and telecommuting. It allows full-time employees working at least 35 hours to have  compressed work schedules.
