National Employ Older Workers Week (NEOWW) has been celebrated for over five decades. Each year during the last full week in September, we promote older worker and increase awareness about the significant role older workers contribute and how their vast experience enrich today’s workforce. Transform Your Workforce – Hire an Older Worker!!

The 2017 NEOWW poster was designed by Aniekan Udofia, a local artist who is best known for his artwork on one of the District of Columbia’s U Street historic famous business – Ben’s Chili Bowl. Our objective this year was to create a poster that not only represents NEOWW, but sends a message to employers across the nation and transform their workforce by hiring older workers.

Your feedback is important to us – it helps us to know whether our message aligns with your mission. Also, we want to share in your excitement and learn about what is going on in your world during NEOWW.
