Age Smart Employer Award
Posted 01/17/2018 04:25PM

Head of School Dominic A.A. Randolph received the Age Smart Employer Award from Robert Kaufman, left, a lawyer with Proskauer Rose LLP and the Age Smart Employer Award Selection Committee Chairman, and Jessica Walker of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and a committee member. 

The Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center recognized Riverdale Country School for promoting generational diversity in its workforce at a breakfast at the Rainbow Room today.

The center noted Riverdale's sabbatical program for faculty with 10 or more years of service, its "passion grants" that allow employees to pursue a hobby or new interest in the summer months, and its willingness to consider job restructurings and reassignments to accommodate older workers.

The Aging Center interviewed 100 applicants from a range of industries across New York City; companies ranged in size from fewer than 20 to several thousand. Six companies, including Riverdale, were featured in a film about the award winners.

The Aging Center is part of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia. The award also received support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
