Survey: Best Employers for Job Seekers Over 40

Yale-New Haven Hospital, The Hartford, Princeton University, PNC Bank, Southeast Corporate FCU, Compuware, and UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences were named as the Best Employers in the US for Job Seekers Over 40 in the first survey conducted by Jobs4.0. Employers were judged on over 20 separate criteria, including rates of new hires of workers over 40, recruitment policies and goals, health benefits and job security for older workers, flexible work options for older workers and more.

According to Jobs4.0 founder and CEO Steven J. Greenberg, "Older job seekers desperately want to find employers that will not view their age and experience as something to be avoided. Ageism in hiring remains prevalent in too many places, and this survey will help point older job seekers--not only retiring baby boomers, but all workers 40 and above--in the right direction."
