Experience for Hire: (Re)energize your Company with Workers 50 and Greater

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

There are more than 1.5 million workers age 50 and older in Michigan. By 2022, the number of workers age 50 and older will constitute more than one-third of the workforce. At the same time, Michigan employers report difficulty filling jobs is the number one challenge facing their business.

The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to partner with AARP Michigan, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Michigan Works! to launch Experience for Hire a unique collaborative that connects talent to jobs.

Experience for Hire provides employers a convenient and unique opportunity to interview passionate, experienced and knowledgeable applicants who bring great value to employers, require limited job training, can work full or part-time and in many cases are not seeking benefits beyond income. Hiring experienced older adults is an option many employers have not considered.

Employers interested in participating in Experience for Hire should visit www. mitalent.org/employercreate-account.

To learn more about Experience for Hire please contact Andrea Palmer at apalmer@aarp.org or 517-267-8929.
