Preparing for an Aging Workforce

By 2028, more than 25% of American workers will be 50 or older. Older Americans bring experience, emotional intelligence, and generational diversity to their organizations but few organizations are actively preparing for or taking advantage of this pool of workers. The Society of Human Resource Management found that only 17% of organizations have considered this trend’s longer-term impact on their organization. The Center for Workforce Inclusion partners with employers to connect them to our national network of workforce development specialists, reach specific communities, build programming, and create custom partnerships aligned with their organizational goals.

Security jobs are a surprisingly good fit for older workers, who exhibit the maturity and observation skills the industry requires. Allied Universal works closely with the Center to create a pipeline of trained older workers. In 2017, Allied Universal hired nearly 11,000 older workers as security professionals and in administrative roles. That’s over 7% of Allied Universal’s workforce!
