Job Fair For Senior Citizens 2019

According to reports, 8.6 per cent of India’s 121 crore population are Senior Citizens. Yet, unfortunately, 88% of the elderly are not covered under any social security scheme forcing them to depend on their meager savings and children for their sustenance. However, the encouraging truth is that many elders in the age group of 60-70 years are physically fit, re-employable and eager to earn their livelihood.

When I heard about the Jobs 60+ project, it was a mixture of surprise and curiosity; surprise because we had never heard of or seen any 60 / 70+ seniors applying for jobs and curiosity as we were not very sure if they would be able to take in the work pressure and also had our doubts on the work-ability of the concept of “late age employment” working in our society. My company initially looked at a temp role for the seniors. After a fortnight, when I was reviewing the dash boards, I was shocked by the quality of work done by the seniors. It was both an eye opener and a humbling experience as I was pleasantly surprised to see that in many instances they had moved ahead of the younger crowd (early 20s) in the organisation. We would like to thank Nightingales for coming up with such a noble and excellent concept, which will not only help in providing succour to the seniors in need of financial assistance, but also provide an opportunity to the elders to lead a responsible and dignified life.
