Home Care Services Pittsburgh PA – Extended Family Care Takes the AARP Employer Pledge

The AARP Employer Pledge Program is “a nationwide group of employers (over 500 strong and growing) which stands with AARP in affirming the value of experienced workers and which are committed to developing diverse, high-performing organizations by leveraging workers of all ages. Smart employers know that the multigenerational workforce yields a strong pipeline of talent, protects business continuity and taps into new resources to address labor shortages.” Extended Family Care is a home health care branch of Star Multi Care and agrees with this philosophy.

“As an employer we consistently look for the top candidates”, stated Liz Hansen, Star Multi Care Human Resources Manager. “Being in business for over 75 years has taught us what to look for”, she continued. “Generally, we have seen the more seasoned candidates bringing higher skill levels and more empathy to the table so we tend to seek them out”, she concluded.

Extended Family Care is pleased to be a part of AARP’s employment efforts. Opportunities for employment can be found at www.extendedfamilycare.com or by calling 412-241-7292.
