Fresenius Medical Care Careers
At 89 years old, Nat Willoughby, “Mr. Nat, ” as he is affectionately known, is the oldest FMCNA employee in the country. He gets up each morning and goes to work at 8:30 as a Ward Clerk at Pitt County Dialysis in Greenville, N.C. He’s worked for Fresenius Medical Care North America and our legacy companies for 37 years and he’s not retiring any time soon.
“You know, I like to have something to do and I need the money, ” said Willoughby, who puts in a good 30 hours a week. “I don’t want to go retire and just sit right down. You don’t last long like that.”
Sheila Reynolds, Clinical Manager at Pitt County, calls Mr. Nat “our rock.”
“He’s always there to do whatever needs to be done, ” she said. “He’s like the backbone of our clinic. And he’s always been.”
Thirty-seven years ago, Willoughby’s duties included housekeeping and some janitorial work. He used to drive the truck and help deliver machines and supplies to patients at home. Sometimes there would be snow in the winter and it was Mr. Nat who cleared the walkways and put down the salt. Now he prepares packets for the nurses, keeps the store room clean and does whatever else needs to be done.
“He’s always smiling, ” said Reynolds. “He’ll pass me in the hallway and say, ‘Hey, Miss Sheila, you going to smile today?’ Having him with us says to the other employees that this company values its older employees.”
Increasingly companies are realizing the value that older employees can bring to the work force. It’s a growing trend, according to Kerry Hannon, contributor at Forbes .com, who cited a study that showed in 1990 employees 65 and older accounted for just 12.1 percent of the workforce, but that slice of the pie expanded to 16.1 percent by 2010.
Phillip Moeller of USNews.com reported that HR managers find older employees are generally more professional, with a strong work ethic and skills that include critical thinking, problem solving and written communication.
