At MoveCenter, we believe a truly diverse workforce is integral to our success, which is why we partnered with AARP to sign the Employer Pledge Program. MoveCenter is one of the first companies to sign this pledge, and by doing so, we agree to continue to:
- Believe in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age
- Believe that age 50+ workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs
- Recognize the value of experienced workers
- Recruit across diverse age groups and consider all applicants on an equal basis
“We are proud to be part of a nationwide group of employers standing with AARP in affirming the value of experienced workers.” says Heisha Freeman, Executive Vice President. A diverse workforce has long been key to the company’s success. In 2019, women made up nearly 70 percent of MoveCenter’s workforce; the company is also 93 percent woman-owned. Additionally, 88 percent of employees are minorities. “Hiring people of all ages, and from all walks of life and backgrounds, makes us a stronger team,” says Freeman. “We recognize the value of life experience within our workforce and appreciate the skills provided by a more mature employee. We are proud to stand with the AARP and reinforce our commitment to recruit employees of all ages and backgrounds.”
From 2002 to 2022, the number of workers age 50 plus is expected to increase by 62 percent, according to the AARP. The organization also states that the aging workforce is motivated and engaged, which is good news for employers seeking to leverage the talent and experience possessed by workers over 50.
The AARP Pledge states, “We believe in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age, and that 50+ workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs. Recognizing the value of experienced workers, we pledge to recruit across diverse age groups and to consider all applicants on an equal basis as we hire for positions within our organization.”
