    Says one baby boomer employee at this software company: “Recognizing that people are at different stages of life and have unique needs, management has made available an Employee Assistance Program to confidentially help employees with family, medical, legal, or several other categories of life issues. To aging baby-boomers, this has proven invaluable. The main campus has a long list of unique benefits, like on-site daycare, a health care facility with on-site doctors and nurses, a recreation facility with swimming pool, basketball, and tennis courts, a variety of high quality, low cost cafes at which to eat. But effort is also made to provide equivalent benefits in the regional offices where on-site facilities aren’t cost effective, such as memberships to day care or recreational businesses. Those of us in regional offices have enjoyed small-business intimacy with big-business benefits.”

     

    According to another boomer: “The company is diligent about investing for the long term, and not subjecting itself to the whimsy of the markets. We didn’t lay people off during the financial crisis, and we’re doing a lot of research into computing paradigms that are still on the drawing boards.”
