DALLAS, 13 December 2023 – o9 Solutions, a leading enterprise AI software platform provider for transforming planning and decision-making, today announced that it signed AARP’s Employer Pledge recognizing the value of experienced workers, and committing to an age-diverse workforce. AARP’s employer pledge reads “We believe in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age, and that 50+ workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs. Recognizing the value of experienced workers, we pledge to recruit across diverse age groups and to consider all applicants on an equal basis as we hire for positions within our organization.”
o9 is committed to creating and maintaining a workplace where all employees, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability status, or sexual identity can have an opportunity to participate and contribute to the success of the business and are valued for their skills, experience, and unique perspectives.
The AARP Employer Pledge Program encompasses a nationwide group of over 2,500 employers who know that the multigenerational workforce yields a strong pipeline of talent, protects business continuity and taps into new resources to address labor shortages. Given employers’ need for talent, it makes great business sense to hire experienced workers, as demonstrated by AARP research.
o9 Co-Founder and CEO Chakri Gottemukkala said: “Building a multigenerational workforce is a great asset, adds significant value, and helps give us an edge in our industry. Employees with different work and life experiences help to make us a better, stronger organization that can better serve our clients, partners, and communities.”
