Hebrew SeniorLife Recognized as a Certified Age Friendly Employer by the Age Friendly Institute
Organization also signs the AARP Employer Pledge
As an organization that prides itself on challenging stereotypes of aging, Hebrew SeniorLife is committed to supporting and empowering staff regardless of age. As an endorsement of this effort, Hebrew SeniorLife was recently recognized as a Certified Age Friendly Employer by the Age Friendly Institute. This certification is issued based on an evaluation of employers’ human resource and management policies and their commitment to recruiting and retaining employees over 50.
In addition to being acknowledged as a Certified Age Friendly Employer, Hebrew SeniorLife committed to supporting an age-diverse workforce by signing the AARP Employer Pledge. Employers who sign the pledge believe in equal opportunity for all workers, recognize the value of experienced employees, recruit across diverse age groups, and believe that workers over the age of 50 should have a level playing field in applying for and obtaining employment.
Hebrew SeniorLife believes that supporting workers of all ages is more than just the right thing to do, it makes us a better, stronger organization. It means that the organization finds and retains the best employees from the largest possible pool of candidates, and having people with a range of life experiences on our teams makes us better at problem-solving, creative thinking, and innovation. Hebrew SeniorLife congratulations our community members for creating an environment that welcomes all people in support of our mission.
