YMCA of Greater Rochester a Winner of the 2005 AARP Best Employers for Workers over 50!

The YMCA of Greater Rochester is among a select group of diverse companies that recruit and retain mature workers – they treat them right – and, as a result, rank among the 35 employers from across the U.S. that have been named 2005 "AARP Best Employers for Workers Over 50." The AARP Best Employers for Workers Over 50 award selection committee seeks to determine employers of choice by, among other things, highlighting those who provide flexible work options, operate creative recruitment programs and rehire retirees.

“The winning employers stand as exemplary models for others who have yet to plan for the graying of their workforce," said Deborah Russell, who directs the Best Employers program for AARP. "The creative practices today's winners have in place may well evolve in the future, but the 2005 Best Employers give us high standards to strive for."
