ASSETS - Senior Employment Opportunity Program:
Today, more than two in five Americans in the labor force are age 40 or older and 21% of the workforce is over 50. ASSETS (Senior Employment Opportunities Program) is a version of the SCSEP Program. ASSETS has successfully matched employers with mature workers since 1969.
At no cost to the employer, ASSETS recruits, screens and trains a mature worker to an organization’s needs. ASSETS provides follow-up job assistance for a full year after the worker is hired.
