AARP has three recommendations for employers to become more age-friendly, Alwin noted.
1. Remove age bias in job descriptions. “Enough with the ‘tech ninja,’” said Alwin.
2. Ban the box. This means: stop asking job applicants to check a box on a job application saying what year they graduated college. “And stop asking about prior wage and salary history,” she said. Connecticut has made it illegal.
3. Evaluate age inclusiveness in your recruitment and retention practices. “Sometimes, you need to be age aware and sometimes you need to be age blind,” Alwin said.
