FedPoint Signs AARP Employer Pledge
Portsmouth, NH (June 13, 2022)—Federal benefits administrator FedPoint® recently took the AARP Employer Pledge, affirming its commitment to hiring experienced workers and to developing a diverse workforce.
By participating in the AARP Employer Pledge Program, FedPoint publicly affirms that it:
- believes in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age
- believes that 50+ workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs
- recognizes the value of experienced workers
- recruits across diverse age groups and considers all applicants on an equal basis
According to AARP, workers 50+ will soon make up 35% of the workforce.
"An age diverse workforce is a dynamic workforce," said FedPoint Director of Human Resources Melissa McLaughlin. "We embrace the unique perspective that experienced workers bring, and we find that their knowledge and life experience make them outstanding contributors and colleagues. What's more, this group typically has ample experience using insurance products and filing claims for themselves and their loved ones, which helps them adapt to the insurance industry with ease."
There are just 33 insurance companies nationwide that have joined the program. In New Hampshire, where nearly 20% of the population is age 65 and older, just 25 companies, across all industries, are participating in the employer pledge program.
