ATLANTA – Manheim’s reputation as a great place to work has been recognized by one of the nation’s most recognized member organizations.

AARP has ranked Manheim 36th in its 2008 “Best Employers for Workers Over 50 list,” which will be featured in AARP The Magazine’s November/December issue.

Manheim earned high marks in the categories of recruiting, which includes the types of employment Manheim offers and its methods and efforts to attract new candidates; continued workplace opportunities, which includes how Manheim provides new experiences for employees in the workplace and opportunities for continued career development; and organization statistics, which includes the age composition of Manheim’s workforce.

“Manheim is honored to be included on this list with other great companies across the nation, and we’re proud that our workers feel that our company offers opportunities for growth and career development for those over 50,” said Lilicia Bailey, Manheim chief people officer. “Approximately one-half of our employees are over the age of 50, and their commitment and dedication help make us a respected leader in the vehicle remarketing industry.”

Employers applied for the Best Employers honor by submitting an application outlining their exemplary policies and practices related to workers over 50. Candidates were reviewed to ensure that practices met the needs of older workers. Key areas of consideration include: recruiting practices; opportunities for training, education and career development; workplace accommodations; alternative work options, such as flexible scheduling, job sharing, and phased retirement; employee health and pension benefits; retiree work opportunities; and training and development.
