Drake International's Acquisition of Prime50 To Support Mature Workers

Drake International has announced that Prime50, a provider of employment for Canadians over age 50, has become a part of the Drake group of companies. According to Karen Meredith, President of Drake North America, "With Prime50, Drake's ability to link the mature workforce to organizations looking for those valuable skills and experience will be greatly enhanced" "As our population ages, employers face a shortage of skilled workers, while many workers want the opportunity to continue on in rewarding employment that makes use of their talents and experience," Ms. Meredith said. The Prime50 web site provides a job board with job postings by employers, as well as an opportunity for the aged 50+ job seeker to register and post their resume.
