NEWS:

Age Smart Employer — an initiative of the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center— launched their Age Smart Industry Guides.

These five separate guides; Family-owned Business, Food Service, Manufacturing and Skilled Trades, Non-profit Organizations and The Advantages of Older Workers; are geared directly to small business owners, to provide them with peer-to-peer advice on solving some of their biggest staffing challenges by hiring and retaining older workers, and were gleaned from interviews conducted with 100 small business owners around New York City.

These guides are a resource intended to stimulate others to follow these leaders and to earn themselves an Age Smart Employer Award, an initative led by the Columbia Aging Center, in partnership with The New York Academy of Medicine (and funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation). Although these guides are New York City specific, many of the tips, policies, and practices have wider applicability.

The guides have received some media coverage, with stories in Crain’s New York Businessand Huff Post.
