Smartpost Taps Into Mature Worker Population with Expanded E-Media Sourcing Options
(June 26, 2009) SmartPost, the innovative online job posting and sourcing product from Bernard Hodes Group, has increased sourcing options for companies interested in taking advantage of the aggressive growth of mature workers using online job board tools and resources. Adding to its already expansive network of e-media job board options, SmartPost has recently partnered with RetirementJobs.com, a leading website focused on targeting job seekers aged 50 plus.
According to a report issued in May 2009 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of employed workers over the age of 55 has grown by more than 800,000 since the economic downturn began in December 2007. With the addition of RetirementJobs.com, SmartPost users will now be able to reach job seekers over the age of 56, while exposing their employment brand and job opportunities to thousands of website visitors every day.
In addition, by 2012 one-third of the U.S. workforce will be age 50 and over, so companies can understand why maximizing opportunities to reach this audience profile will provide a competitive recruiting advantage, and SmartPost has taken a proactive measure to ensure their e-media library provides sourcing options that fit the needs of its customers.
"We want to make sure that the recruitment community using SmartPost has the largest reach and most targeted sourcing options available to them, and the statistics are pointing to sites that specialize in matching older workers with the right companies," said Carmen Doherty, senior director, SmartPost. "We have grown this niche category inside SmartPost over the last several months to accommodate the rising interest expressed."
"Whether by choice or necessity, job seekers 50 years of age and older are using online job boards more than ever," said Lynn Stewart, Director of Business Development, RetirementJobs.com. "Working in partnership with SmartPost, RetirementJobs.com can efficiently deliver well-qualified, emotionally mature candidates directly to SmartPost clients to improve recruitment time, costs and ultimately retention as mature workers typically maintain employment 2-3 times longer than younger workers."
