Encore PBC Launches “Wisdom & Experience WORKS for Business”

Encore Palm Beach County’s mission is to encourage employers to attract, re-train and retain mature workers.  Many outstanding local organizations have already experienced enhanced ROI by tapping into this sector of the workforce.

On Friday, January 17, Encore PBC introduced a new business award entitled “Wisdom and Experience WORKS for Business”, to celebrate these businesses and share best practices on how to build an inter-generational workforce to achieve strategic advantage. The kick-off breakfast was held at Hyatt Place Delray Beach and attended by more than 50 Human Resources representatives, executives and government personnel. Speakers for the event included Rosemary Nixon, Founder & President, Encore PBC; Karen Roberts, Area Agency on Aging and Encore PBC Board Member; and Marilyn Durant, Durant Resources Group.

Full details regarding the “Wisdom and Experience WORKS for Business” award including nomination process and criteria will be announced by Encore PBC shortly.
