SHRM Foundation Releases "Investing in Older Workers" DVD

Sep 10, 2014

ALEXANDRIA, Va.,— As part of its Aging Workforce Project, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Foundation recently released the “Investing in Older Workers” DVD, an educational video demonstrating how one organization is cultivating a culture of respect for older workers.

In March 2014, SHRM and the SHRM Foundation launched the Aging Workforce project, a three-year national initiative highlighting the value of older workers through original research and analysis of HR practices to educate businesses about the implications of retiring Baby Boomers in the workplace.

In the “Investing in Older Workers” DVD, a 20-minute film featuring narration by Wayne Cascio, the SHRM Foundation travels to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland to learn about their efforts to attract, engage and retain mature workers. The NIH ranked first in the AARP-SHRM Best Employers for Workers over 50 award, making NIH the only Federal agency to achieve this distinction.

The DVD was produced with support from AARP and a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The “Investing in Older Workers” DVD is the thirteenth video in the SHRM Foundation film series. Additionally, the DVD is available with subtitles in Spanish, German, Korean, Chinese and English.
