For the past year, we have been working with the New York Academy of Medicine to create the Age Smart Employer Award. The program was launched by NYAM and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The goal of the awards program was to define, exemplify and publicize the Age-friendly Workplace in NYC. Through the synthesis of their research and ours, we created the story, name, logo, website design, and physical award.
The competition ended in December and last night, a special ceremony was held where the winners were announced and presented with their Age Smart Employer Awards. They were chosen based on their ability to demonstrate that their workplace optimizes the talent of older workers and creates environments that capitalize on age-diverse workforces, while meeting both business and employee goals.
Congratulations to the winners: Montefiore Medical Center, Pfizer, Renewal Care Partners, and Ristorante Settepani & Settepani Bakery
