We recognize the importance of not staying silent on essential debates, so we want to reaffirm our stance as a company that supports and practices equal opportunities for all. We want to affirm our ongoing commitment to the policies and practices we have always had in place as an equal opportunity work environment.
We recognize the value of experienced workers and are committed to an age-diverse workforce regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, gender, disability status, or any other dimension of diversity.
Co-Founder Lawrence Kosick said “Garnishing the wisdom of our aging generation is how we empower not just our company but Americans in general. Those over 50 have a wealth of knowledge and talent, plus they will be 25% of the U.S. population in the next 20 years. GetSetUp provides economic opportunities for our Guides to do meaningful work and give back to their peer community through classes that help learners feel more connected, empowered, and engaged.”
GetSetUp believes in equal opportunity for all workers, regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, religion, gender, or disability status. We know that older adult workers should have a level playing field in their ability to compete for and obtain jobs. We recognize the value of experienced workers which is why all of our Guides are older adults and we consider all applicants on an equal basis as we hire for positions within our organization. GetSetUp creates economic opportunities for older adults, which you can read more about in our blog.
Furthermore, GetSetUp is launching its GetSetUp Marketplace where older adults with a strong passion for teaching any skill can apply, and we will provide them with the training to become great online Guides. They will have the opportunity to showcase their classes to over 20,000 members on a monthly basis and this gives them an extra opportunity to join the passion economy.
