Adecco receives AARP distinction


Adecco Awarded AARP’s Best Employers for Workers Over 50

Melville, NY (September 21, 2006) – Adecco, the world leader in workforce solutions, is one of 50 companies across the nation honored by AARP as one of the 2006 Best Employers for Workers Over 50.  This marks the third year Adecco has been awarded this distinction, which was created to feature employers who show commitment to an aging workforce.

“Mature workers and retirees add tremendous value to the American workforce,” says Ray Roe, President of Adecco USA. “Their depth and breadth of experience and on-the-job dedication are invaluable to employers, and we are honored to be recognized for our commitment to their success.”

Recruiting and training 50+ workers has been a clear priority for Adecco.  The company created the Renaissance program which attracts aging workers to apply for temporary positions by developing recruitment materials aimed specifically at this population.  Additionally, Adecco offers full and part-time employees benefits that are particularly attractive to 50+ workers, including flexible work schedules, tuition reimbursement, in-house classroom training, online training and certification classes. 

“Dynamic employers recognize the importance of creating a mutually beneficial work environment,” said Deborah Russell, AARP Director of Economic Security and Work, in discussing the award. “Adecco continues to demonstrate its dedication to bringing valuable opportunities to this important demographic.  We are delighted to present this distinction to Adecco for the third year.” 

Key areas of consideration for those honored by AARP include recruiting practices, opportunities for training, education and career development; workplace accommodations; alternative work options, such as flexible scheduling, job sharing, and phased retirement; employee health and pension benefits; retiree benefits, and age diversity of the workforce.
