American Association of Retired Persons’ 50 best employers for boomer workers

For the 22 million people who are currently unemployed, underemployed or have given up on finding work, the perks offered by the 50 companies on AARP’s list of best employers may seem like a sort of mirage.

Telecommuting and flexible work schedules. Phased retirement programs. Free health-care benefits. Retirement-planning seminars. Emergency eldercare services. Those are just a few of the perks offered by some of the companies on the list compiled this year by AARP and the Society for Human Resource Management, or SHRM, an association for human-resource professionals.

Another reason these employers made the cut? They actively recruit and retain mature workers.

The Top 25 employers

Here is AARP’s list of the 50 best employers for workers over age 50:
