Founder of Retirementjobs.com and the Age-Friendly Institute
Tim founded RetirementJobs.com in 2005 with a team of professionals with a background in media, online recruiting and human capital management, such as AOL, Monster Worldwide and Towers Watson. At RetirementJobs.com the goal is to identify companies most-suited to older workers and match them with active, productive, conscientious, mature adults seeking a job or prospect that matches their lifestyle. Tim’s belief is that population shifts have baby boomers turning 65 amidst a dwindling supply of younger workers; health changes have people living longer than ever; a new definition of retirement includes a desire to stay active or a need to remain gainfully employed; and research confirms what many have known all along: that, on top of experience, older workers bring valuable traits such as lower turnover, greater dependability, a stronger work ethic, and flexibility over work schedule and pay.
Tim also founded the Age-Friendly Institute, with its expanded initiative to recognize age-friendly employers: the Certified Age Friendly Employer program (CAFÉ), the nation’s only certification program that identifies organizations committed to being the best places to work for employees aged 50+. Over 150 companies have received the CAFÉ certification and more have applied to become certified as companies have recognized their need for mature workers. If you are a jobseeker you will want to learn more about how to find age-friendly employers. If you are an employer here in Palm Beach County, you will want to learn how to become certified by the Age-Friendly Institute.

The Inaugural Wisdom & Experience Works for Business Awards
On January 17, 2020, Encore PBC launched its new business award, Wisdom & Experience WORKS for Business, at a kick-off breakfast in Delray Beach. Now, the conversation regarding mature workers and the value of an intergenerational workforce continues, and we would love to include you.
If you are a company or organization that supports mature workers by recruiting, retaining and engaging them as a way to leverage your return on investment, we encourage you to nominate your company for the groundbreaking 2nd Annual Wisdom and Experience Works for Business Award.
This event is a must attend for anyone interested in hearing more about how to set a high standard for nurturing older workers thereby boosting overall organizational effectiveness and performance. Find out how to prepare for, and leverage, the challenges and opportunities of an aging workforce.
With decades of productivity ahead, adults 50+ are a growing and renewable resource that is currently being underutilized.
WHY DO COMPANIES NEED TO THINK ABOUT THE VALUE OF MATURE WORKERS? BECAUSE FUTURE PRODUCTIVITY WILL DEPEND ON THEM.
Chris Farrell, in his book Purpose and a Paycheck, quotes PwC, the giant global consulting firm: “If the United States increased its employment levels of older adults to New Zealand’s, the American economy would expand by over $815 billion.”
And this from Accenture, in collaboration with Oxford Economics: “Increasing the number of older people in the workforce and making productivity-enhancing investments in their skills could boost U.S. gross domestic product by $442 billion and lift employment levels by 5 million by 2020.”
