To retain and celebrate their experienced employees, Scripps hosts an annual Hollywood-themed party — red carpet, limos and all — for anyone reaching five-year milestones.
Your employer doesn't need to literally roll out the red carpet to be a great place for older workers. In fact, participating in the Best Employers program might help it become an even better employer. One of the program's most valuable features is to provide company leaders an opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another through roundtable discussions.
At the end of the yearlong process, AARP provides each applicant with extensive feedback about its workplace policies, pointing out where they are excelling and where they are falling short.
If you think your employer deserves some recognition and feedback for the way it treats older workers, recommend it to be one of our next Best Employers. We want to hear from you.
Jean Setzfand is vice president of financial security at AARP.
