“…the mission to empower longer careers along the longer lifespan.”
“We don’t think a career should have an expiration date. Over half of Americans 50+ are pushed out of long term jobs before they choose to retire. At CIRKEL, we’re working to change this.”
“Early in her career, CIRKEL Founder Charlotte Japp noticed a huge gap between the 20-somethings she worked with and baby boomers like her parents. Older workers had decades of experience, but were forced to retire or start secondary careers due to ageist hiring trends. Her friends and colleagues wanted career mentorship, while her parents and their friends were looking for new skills and trend reports to stay competitive in their careers.”
“Have you ever considered intergenerational relationship-building a workplace tool? These days, not only is it a means to develop professional relevance, it’s a key to organizational success.”
