ATLANTA – Manheim – the world’s leading provider of vehicle remarketing services – enjoys a reputation as a great place to work according to AARP, who recently recognized Manheim for the third time as one of the “Best Employers for Workers Over 50.” Approximately 57 percent of Manheim’s workforce is over the age of 50 with 19 percent of these employees having worked for Manheim for more than 20 years. Manheim, which ranks 27th on this year’s list, will be featured in AARP The Magazine’s November/December issue. The ranking demonstrates Manheim’s best practices with regard to recruitment, retention and career development of all employees, as well as creating a workplace that offers value to the local communities that Manheim serves.
“We’re very proud to be recognized by AARP,” said Lilicia Bailey, senior vice president and chief people officer of Manheim. “We value the rich diversity that a multigenerational workforce brings to our business because it helps us understand and serve a wide array of customer’s needs. In addition to strengthening the diversity and expanding the talent of our workplace, seasoned workers often have flexibility with their schedule and bring a wide array of experiences that create on-the-job learning opportunities for others.”
Manheim excelled in the areas of senior-level recruiting, workplace culture and continued opportunities, which include learning development opportunities, tuition reimbursement and an online Career Development Center. Additional opportunities also exist, including participation in alternative work arrangements, including flexible work hours, telecommuting and compressed work schedules. Additional factors in this year’s recognition include full health coverage employee benefits and a first-rate retirement package, including retiree healthcare, pension, and 401(k) with an employer match and financial planning assistance.
Bailey added, “An inclusive and diverse workforce is core to our company’s long-term success.”
Manheim also was awarded “Best Employers for Workers Over 50” from AARP in 2008 and 2009. AARP did not publish awards for 2010.
