AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) has ranked it as one of the best employers for older workers. Nearly one-quarter of Volkswagen's US workforce is over the age of 50. It offers financial assistance for fitness expenses, counseling for work/family issues, and flexible schedule for older workers. Baptist Health South Florida, a health care provider is also attracting older workers. Beyond making jobs attractive, Baptist is also striving to make jobs more feasible for older workers.
