December 4, 2007

AARP recently named SC Johnson the No. 1
company in the U.S. for workers over 50. AARP’s Best Employer list recognizes companies for demonstrating exemplary practices in the recruitment, retention and promotion of mature workers. It also distinguishes companies that foster a workplace that supports the aging workforce and encourages workers to remain active in their lives.

“Part of caring about and investing in our employees is to listen to their needs,” said Gayle Kosterman, SC Johnson’s executive vice president of worldwide human resources. “In doing so, we’ve implemented a wide variety of programs to match with needs of varying life stages. These programs are appreciated and have helped to create a committed, energetic workplace.”

SC Johnson’s workforce includes a large percentage of seasoned workers. Approximately 35% of SC Johnson’s U.S. workforce is 50 years or older. Approximately 28% of its managers and 38% of its executives are 50-plus.
