The Value of Hiring and Keeping Mature Workers

A recent study by Strategy One, a market research firm, concluded that baby boomers don’t consider themselves old until the age of “74” and that 78% believe there are still opportunities open and available to them. Another study by AARP reports that 70% of boomers plan on working well past retirement age. What do these statistics indicate?

It shows that baby boomers are still a valuable resource in the work force and that their significance needs to be recognized and embraced. Boomers bring some special qualities to a company that they won’t find in their younger employees.
