National Employee Older Worker Week is coming fast! This year, NEOWW is September 22-28. Our theme this year is that older workers are a valuable asset for employers, especially as it relates to mentoring and being a role model for younger workers.

All of the NEOWW materials – two different posters in two size, in English and Spanish – can be accessed by clicking here or by clicking the “Resources” tab above. You are welcome to print or electronically distribute these posters however you like.

In the comments, let us know what you are planning to do for National Employ Older Workers Week!

Starting today, we will be periodically uploading a new type of resource to the Community of Practice - tip sheets. These documents will provide an overview of different aspects of SCSEP. Our first two tip sheets - on rotation policies and on-the-job experience (OJE) - cover what, exactly, these policies entail; when you might want to use them; and what requirements you need to meet before you do.

Please let us know in the comments what other topics you would like to see covered by tip sheets!

September is National Preparedness Month, a nation-wide event encouraging Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, offices, and schools. It is also a good time to think about the emergency plan that all SCSEP grantees are required to have in place. If you need to create or revise your emergency plan, please view the recorded training on Emergency Preparedness for SCSEP Grantees.

National Employee Older Worker Week is September 22-28, 2013! Our theme this year is that older workers are a valuable asset for employers, especially as it relates to mentoring and being a role model for younger workers. We are providing files for two posters in two sizes for NEOWW.  The smaller-sized poster is 8.5x11 inches, and can be easily produced on a desktop printer; the larger size is 16x20 inches. Each poster is available in English and Spanish.

 

In addition, we have also provided a one-page handout on the value of older workers that can be used when engaging with businesses and other employers.

 

The posters and handout are available for download under the Resources tab. You are welcome to print or electronically distribute these posters however you like.

 

Happy National Employ Older Workers Week!

the LMI Win-Win Community of Practice has released a new "We've Got Your Number(s) - Key Workforce Trends" report. If you want to know how the workforce is faring without going through the effort of using customized data tools and checking many Web sites, they’ve done the work for you.

The new series of tables and charts covers employment, unemployment, earnings, benefits, educational attainment, and poverty for  the entire labor force as well as illuminating trends for youth and older workers, and by gender, race, ethnicity, persons with disabilities, veterans, and foreign-born workers.

Each posting includes 1) a spreadsheet showing annual statistics for as far back as consistent data exist, 2) one or more charts, and 3) a narrative explanation of highlights and trends.  Each chart includes a narrative summary of the main findings, and data for selected historical high and low points.
