Due to the shrinking skilled labor pool, many businesses are hiring seniors, older workers, boomers, retirees, geezers (whatever you choose to call them) in record numbers.

American workers are living longer and staying healthier. Some seniors prefer to continue to use their skills acquired in the workplace past retirement age. And, current trends in social security eligibility, reduced cost-of-living increases, and retirement plan challenges have forced many older Americans to re-enter the workforce. Some just want to keep busy.

Statistics show that hiring seniors makes good business sense. Some seniors, about 45% according to our survey, prefer part-time work with flexible schedules. And, overall seniors are punctual, exhibit strong work ethics, and generally experience fewer on-the-job injuries than younger workers.

We are confident that the "visionary" businesses out there will see the value of recruiting (and retaining) experienced workers. We are advocates for people 50 and older seeking jobs and/or other ways of earning money and we work tirelessly to persuade businesses to overcome any vestiges of age discrimination.

As word of our existence and methodology spreads, more and more companies are tapping our services.
