As a Certified Age-Friendly EmployerTM, your organization joins a select list of employers that stand apart in workplaces worldwide and the communities where they conduct business. Flexible work schedules, world-class training programs, and great healthcare benefits are just a few examples of the employment practices that place you ahead of your competition when it comes to retaining and attracting workers and customers over age 50.

We’ve made it easy to tell your story!


The Certified Age-Friendly Employer™ (CAFE) seal:

The Certified Age-Friendly EmployerTM (CAFE) seal is a mark of excellence that your organization should proudly display within the job postings on your website, all your online and offline recruitment media, and even in non-recruitment marketing materials. Let us know if you’d like our help in displaying the seal on your website. Send an e-mail to:

*When you display this seal on your digital marketing collateral, you are required to link to the Age-Friendly Institute website.

Use our suggested social copy and graphics to promote your new certification:

Why Display Your Certification?


Because you appeal to people over 50, more qualified candidates will apply to your jobs.  Employers experience an application rate lift when the seal is displayed on job postings of up to 20%.


Displaying the seal in employee communications shows current employees that your management values workers over age 50.  

Brand Marketing

Employing people over 50 is an important component of your diversity initiatives, and displaying the seal reinforces your company’s commitment to the senior population for employees and customers.

Certified Age-Friendly Employer Plaque

Certified Age-Friendly Employers can now proudly display their commitment to age inclusivity in the workplace with a customized plaque. These plaques not only serve as a badge of honor but also signify a dedication to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment. By prominently showcasing this recognition, employers can attract top talent and demonstrate their commitment to age diversity and inclusion.


Visibility for Your Brand

In addition to trade shows, website listings, and social media postings, your brand may get visibility at high profile events. At a Massachusetts Tax Relief Proposal press conference with Governor Charlie Baker, Age-Friendly Institute President Tim Driver highlights the work being done by Certified Age-Friendly Employers 2Life Communities, Benchmark Senior Living, Fidelity Investments, Lasell Village, Massachusetts General Brigham, and Point32Health.
