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 youEncore Palm Beach County 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 Wisdom and Experience Works for Business Award.  The nomination form can be found at below.  Plan to hear nationally known Speaker Chris Farrell explore the benefits of an intergenerational workforce in more detail and find out what companies in our area are award winners.

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. To help match qualified job seekers with companies who understand their value, a mature job fair will be held in conjunction with this event.  More information on participating in the job fair as an employer or job seeker can be found at below.

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.”
