Synergy Homecare Selected to Join AARP's National Employer Team
January 22, 2008 // Franchising.com // - (Gilbert, AZ)---It's no secret that with age comes experience; however, in today's competitive job market, the skills of older workers are often overlooked by potential employers in favor of younger, more impressionable staffers. In home, non-medical care provider Synergy HomeCare values the talent of mature workers and will continue to recruit such candidates as a new member of AARP's National Employer Team.
AARP's National Employer Team program connects 50+ workers with employers who recognize the value of their experience and skills. National Employment Team employers undertake a detailed application process to demonstrate their interest in hiring mature workers. AARP's website also provides information on the employers and the positions they have posted on their websites, along with links to each employer's AARP career page.
"Our National Employer Team members recognize the changes occurring in the labor force," said Deborah Russell, AARP's Director of Workforce Issues. "In the next three to five years, the federal government could potentially lose over a third of its workforce to retirement. Attracting 50+ workers is an excellent way to prepare for such an enormous shift."
"We are honored that AARP has teamed up with us to provide such a valuable service," said Peter Tourian, Synergy HomeCare's founder, president and CEO. "There's a job out there for everyone and it's our goal to see to it that the best possible candidates are hired, regardless of age."
