Personnel Practices for an Aging Work Force: Private-Sector Examples. An Information Paper.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Special Committee on Aging.
This information paper provides employers, policymakers, and the general public with examples of innivative personnel policies and practices designed by private sector employers to increase employment opportunities for older workers. Part 1 is an introduction and overview. It defines the problems of the older worker and describes the National Older Worker Information System (NOWIS), the data source for this paper. It then examines the specifics of the types of programs developed by the private sector, including hiring for part- and full-time employment, training, transitions to retirement, and job redesign and flexible scheduling. Part 2 contains a selection of company summaries from NOWIS. The 38 company summaries appear in alphabetical order by company name. Each summary contains these components: problems/improvements addressed, summary, and description. A listing of personal sources of data for company summaries is presented. Three indexes provide access to the company summaries according to: (1) the program type; (2) the type of industry; and (3) the type of work force covered. (YLB)
