SCSEP Information for Employers
Finding the kind of employee that can help take your business to the top of its game is never easy. Factor in the recent economic downturn and many companies are finding that, along with decreasing profits and a shrinking workforce, employee productivity is declining.
Now, more than ever, hiring workers who are loyal, efficient and productive can mean the difference between companies that are competitive and companies that aren’t.
The good news is you can find the caliber of employee you’re looking for if you expand your search to include a previously under-utilized pool of talent — those 55 and older. Bringing valuable qualities such as experience, enthusiasm and loyalty to the workplace, these workers can play an important role in improving productivity in your organization.
