Ongoing reorganization in order to reduce staffing based on years worked, pay scale and position. They call it Hartford Next. I was given severance but at 63 it’s difficult to find a position, didn’t plan to retire for a few more years.
I have personally applied to the Hartford on many occasions. AARP had an article outlining The Hartford's program to hire older employees. The article provided the name of the department and person to contact for employment. I called many times stating my purpose for calling and my experience. No one returned my calls.
Recently the Hartford had a concerted effort to force older employees into early retirement by eliminating the retiree medical plan and ending pensions contributions. Many of those who left were replaced by less expensive, younger people or by offshored talent
There have been 7 employees from one dept. let go in the last year - all over the age of 50.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
