PITTSFIELD, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- When you think of company's that are known for being good places to work for people over 50, a construction company might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But Cianbro Corporation has landed in AARP's top 50 list of Best Employers for workers over 50.
AARP officials say, In a state with a large and growing mature workforce, Cianbro Corporation knows that recruiting and retaining workers 50+ is smart business.
Mark Hovey is in the human resources department at Cianbro. He says older employees also help mentor the new ones.
Hovey says, "When it comes to age its not really a factor to us. We don't discriminate. And we find that our older work force population, which we have a fairly significant group, that they really contribute a lot to our daily and continued success."
The top Best Employers this year will be profiled in the August-September issue of AARP The Magazine.
