Hire an older worker! Older workers have a vital role in the workforce. This segment of the labor market continues to grow, and according to the United States Department of Labor, “By 2020, it is estimated that workers 55 and over will make up 25% of the U.S. civilian labor force.”
We know employers rate older workers high on characteristics such as judgment, commitment to quality, reliability, attendance, and punctuality. This makes hiring older adults a strategic move that brings years of experience to the workplace.
