About Hire Retirees:
The principals at Hire Retirees have been hearing the frustrations from both sides: from employers who say there is a skills gap in the workforce, that they can't find employees with the right abilities to fill all of their open positions. And from older workers who have retired too soon, who still want to work, but can't find jobs suited to their level of professional experience.
In other words, there is also a gap in the staffing industry: between employers and a largely untapped, highly valuable talent pool. Hire Retirees was created to bridge that gap.
Hire Retirees was created to be different than online job boards that simply advertise jobs. We build relationships with our customers to understand their requirements and we take the time to meet face to face with our employees, matching the right people with the right opportunity.
We specialize in placing highly motivated, skilled candidates into specific positions that exist with our clients.
The Baby Boom generation began moving into retirement on January 1, 2011 at the rate of 10,000 per day. According to the US Census Bureau and Department of Labor, approximately 30 to 40 percent of this demographic will be seeking some kind of employment to supplement their incomes. We're proud to be serving this growing demographic while helping our clients solve their hiring challenges.
