We were honored this week when Fast Company magazine named AARP as one of its 2020 Best Workplaces for Innovators. This list honors businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. We were proud to be ranked No. 14. Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2020 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity and engineering.

AARP is an organization with a long history of innovation. Our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, created the first national group health insurance program for seniors, years before Medicare, one of the first mail-order prescription drug services and many other programs to help people live better as they age, and we've been at it ever since.

Today, innovation is a key to our work to empower people to choose how they live as they age. That's why we created AARP Innovation Labs to help shape the future of aging, promote healthy aging, support family caregivers, and help older Americans build financial resilience and combat social isolation. Through our own research and collaborations with technology companies, start-ups and entrepreneurs, we're developing products such as Alcove, Savo, HomeFit AR and others to help people live better as they age.

AARP employees are empowered to be everyday innovators in aging to spark real solutions that meet the needs of older adults and their families today and in the future. This has been especially important as tens of millions of older Americans struggle to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
