GetSetup signed AARP’s employer pledge recognizing the value of experienced workers, and committing to an age-diverse workforce. The AARP Employer Pledge Program encompasses a nationwide group of employers who know that the multigenerational workforce yields a strong pipeline of talent, protects business continuity, and taps into new resources to address labor shortages.

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.”
Along with this pledge, GetSetup is announcing the launch of the GetSetup Marketplace where workers over the age of 50 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.
