Other advantages of hiring older workers compared to other workers?
  • Wisdom, Emotional Intelligence, Team Players
  • Sometimes they also provide patience as they have seen things come and go and understand the big picture cycle of things.
  • Older workers are more apt to work for not for profits -- like us
  • Older workers are as productive.
  • Many of your options need to be asked with the context of continuing to employ; not just hiring. Also if you are just isolating older workers, it should be clear to the responder - do not blend older with long-term employees. Answers will change.
  • Many of these may or may not apply but it is dependent on the individual not age
  • I was tempted to check all of these, but of course it is wrong to stereotype older workers just as it is younger. All could be true. All are often true.
  • I do not believe that you should categorize a worker based on their age. There are examples of these advantages in all age groups.
  • Generally have more drive because they have living expenses and we pay on commission so need folks who are "hungry" and produce results
  • Extend the available workforce
  • Dependability
  • Attendance Performance
