Celebrating Older Workers

By Our Town Towntown Staff

Our Town Downtown, February 11, 2014

The New York Academy of Medicine, in conjunction with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, announced the winners of their first annual Age-Smart Employer Awards, which recognizes NYC employers who value older workers.

The winners include the Montefiore Medical Center, Pfizer Inc., Renewal Care Partners and Ristorante Settepani & Settepani Bakery. All winners were judged on their organization’s commitment to leverage talent of older workers while meeting both the businesses and employees goals.

An aging workforce and later retirement continue to be a rising trend in America. According to the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, 41% of Americans 55 or older will be employed this year, making up 21% of the workforce. In NYC alone, this accounts for over 700,000 workers.

The award ceremony, at WNYC’s Greene Space in SoHo, included a keynote by City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and special guest Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.
