The AARP lists the Top Employers for Older Workers!

Today word came about that the AARP has released their 7th annual list of the best companies to work for by “attracting and keeping older workers with such benefits as paid-in-full health screenings, phased retirement, a "summers off" program, continuing education, and more. Looks like employers that want to capitalize on this growing, working demographic have got it together. The AARP had them file a close to 60-page application to be considered for the list of the best places for a 50+ worker to punch his or her time card.

Here’s a rundown of the top 10, a link to their site and the location of their headquarters:

1. SC Johnson, Racine, Wisconsin
