Nominations are now being accepted in the search for America’s oldest worker. Sponsored by nonprofit Experience Works, the nation’s largest training and employment organization for older workers, the search is part of a national effort to raise awareness about the contributions older individuals make in today’s workplace and to break down barriers often associated with their employment.
Nominees must be 100 years of age or older, currently employed and working at least 20 hours each week for pay. The selected honoree for 2009 will receive public recognition and travel to Washington, D.C., in September to participate in a news conference and national recognition event. Additional information, including the nomination form, is available at The deadline for nominations is June 1.
“At Experience Works, we believe that people who are productive and active throughout their lives will have better health, increased longevity and a more positive impact on their communities,” said Experience Works CEO Cynthia Metzler. “We also know that employers who hire, train and retain older workers will be most successful.”
