Increasing Employment Opportunities for Older Adults

In order for a community to be age-friendly, older adults must have opportunities to work and/or volunteer.  Work opportunities for older adults can provide very meaningful income and ways to stay active and engaged.

This component has focused on the development of training curricula for employers that identify the benefits and carefully examine the myths and misconceptions associated with the employment of older adults.  The trainings and training materials have focused both on the recruitment and retention of older adults from an employers’ human resource perspective.   Key stakeholders such as the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Miami Society of Human Resource Managers (GMSHRM), and South Florida Workforce have helped to make these efforts successful.

Visit the Video Library to view some of the videos that have been created as a result of this project.
