The VALUE of Hiring Experience

An older woman and a young woman look at documents for work.Employers overlooking the 50+ age group are missing out on a valuable source of talent and experience.

50+ workers are motivated by current and future financial needs to stay in the workplace. They also continue to work for psychological and social fulfillment. It is expected that 35% of the workforce will be 50+ in 2022, as compared to just 25% in 2002. Research confirms that the rate of growth of health care costs for workers 50+ is slower than for younger counterparts. The 50+ cohort continues to be the most engaged across all generations, bringing important knowledge, skills and problem-solving experience to the workplace.*
