Employing, Retaining, and Accommodating the Aging Workforce
Thursday, May 26 at 2pm ET

Presenters:  Randee Chafkin, Policy Advisor, Disabilities Unit, U.S. Department of Labor
                    Ann Hirsch, Co-Director, Job Accomodation Network

The aging workforce will have a significant impact on business, including issues related to knowledge retention, multi-generational teams, retirement practices, and care-giving. Employees need to be supported so they can age in place, especially since many older workers have disabilities. This webinar will present information on accommodations, best practice strategies to retain older workers, and resources. Watch Workforce3One for registration information.

PY 2011 goal negotiation is coming soon! To help you prepare, Phil Hostetter and Bennett Pudlin have recorded a training session on the goal negotiation process. Grantees will learn the specifics of goal negotiation – how the procedure works, and what data are acceptable in support of a request to adjust goals.

The Urban Institute recently held a discussion on Enhancing the Employability and Well-Being of Low-Income Older Americans:

Older Americans have been particularly hard hit by the current economic downturn, with their unemployment rate reaching the highest level in 30 years. Adding to the problem, many safety net program budgets have been cut severely. To serve more low-income older adults with fewer resources, government programs and private-sector organizations are collaborating, including the Senior Community Service Employment Program, area agencies on aging, the workforce development system, community action agencies, and post-secondary educational institutions. This forum examines how cross-system partnerships, policies, and practices can improve low-income older Americans’ employment, civic engagement, well-being, and self-sufficiency.

Video of the event is now available online at the link above. We encourage grantees to view the discussion for ideas on building partnerships and leveraging resources.

National Employ Older Worker Week is quickly approaching! This year, the dates for NEOWW are September 18-24. This is a great time to plan employer outreach programs!
