At Tengia, a California based company, they believe America’s 65 plus community should be given more than just senior discounts or “over the hill” novelties.
Every 8 seconds, 10,000 people turn 65 and become seniors every day.
But, society is doing little to embrace and celebrate these older workers of which many are experienced professionals.
Today, 13% of Americans are 65 plus and by 2030, almost 20% of the nation’s population will be 65 plus.
Many of them will retire without a financial umbrella.
As a result, they will be looking for employment.
As a population enthralled by youth culture, the U.S. has lost value for institutional wisdom.
Younger generations are falling more out of touch with seniors.
Older individuals are ostracized, labeled as has-beens, liabilities, takers not givers, and are falling prey to age discrimination in the workplace.
Yet, Americans are living longer and staying active and productive well past the traditional retirement age.
The nation does not recognize that the aging population is a resource and should be given purpose again.
Tengia see a need for a deep-rooted change in society’s view of the aging population.
Moreover, there is a treasure-trove of knowledge and experience hiding in seniors!
What I like about Tengia is they aim to help the aging population reshape America’s society and economy.
Also, they want to provide purpose to those who have given us their best for the last few decades.
Most retired seniors are not interested in starting a business.
The majority, however, are interested in finding a job to supplement their social security.
Tengia offers an alternative to those who have to go back into the workforce.
On the other hand, you can’t talk up a good thing without mentioning its predominant negative aspect.
The current jobs market is extremely competitive, for every age group.
The best way Tengia solves this problem is by matching an employer with a seasoned professional to perform the job.
This solution helps the service provider and client determine the “best fit” for their needs.
More importantly, seniors are not competing with younger job seekers.
Basically, there is a three-step process to go from job seeking to hired.
Since rural money is solution-oriented, Tengia is a win-win and a short-cut to supplementing personal finance.
That being said, I can hardly wait for this business model to roll out to other major cities across the nation.
