Are you missing out on great talent?

Unfortunately ageism is becoming an increasing problem within businesses, with often a negative perception when it comes to the capability of older individuals.

This represents a big problem for society as a whole, especially when you consider that by 2041, more than 20 million people will be over 60. This equates to 37% of the population (Source: Age Concern Report).

You may be asking, why should you care? You have to do what's in the best interest of the business after all don't you? Well we're here to tell you that despite these perceptions, there are actually many benefits to employing older individuals, here is some food for thought:

  • Experience: It's hard for anyone to argue the benefit of experience, both life and workplace experience, creating a much greater pool of knowledge for a business to draw on.
  • Technology: It's often perceived that older individuals are not as tech savvy, whilst this can sometimes be the case, it's also important to remember that as our population continues to age, those entering into the older bracket have also been around technology all their lives and may have a better balance and more mature approach to the use of technology in the workplace.
  • Loyalty: Many suggest that older employees are likely to be more loyal and less likely to move from job to job.
  • Productivity: It can also be argued that older employees are more productive individual.

If you consider your current workforce though, would it not benefit from some additional experience and wisdom?
