Preparing for an Aging Workforce

By 2024, one in four American workers will be 55 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. SSAI can help your organization tap into the abundance of older workers in the United States through our nationwide training programs. See just some of the organizations we’ve worked with below.

 

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 SSAI 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!
