CVS has received the 2007 ASA Business and Aging Award, presented at a joint conference held by the American Society on Aging (ASA) and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) in Chicago. CVS was recognized for its successful initiatives to recruit, train, and retain older workers and to pass along their knowledge to younger employees. Through its innovative mature worker partnerships and programs, the chain has increased its percentage of employees age 50 and older from 7% in the early 1990s to more than 17% today. One of the mature worker activities is the Snowbird Program, which lets employees transfer to a different location on a seasonal basis to fill positions, such as greeting-card specialists, cosmetic consultants, photo supervisors, and pharmacists.
