For the seventh time since 2003, MIT has been selected for the AARP “50 Best Employers for Workers Over 50” list.
MIT is one of only three organizations in Massachusetts to be selected for the bi-annual list from the AARP, which recognizes organizations who are “developing progressive policies and practices that are meeting the needs of an aging global workforce.”
Alison Alden, vice president for human resources at MIT, says she is pleased that MIT has steadily received this distinction. “Our objective at MIT is to promote a workplace of inclusion that welcomes and supports people of varying backgrounds, different viewpoints, experience, talents and ideas — a multi-generational workforce is critical to achieve that outcome," Alden said. "HR is able to address the needs of over-50 employees because we are continuously assessing the needs of the entire MIT community.”
