Mature age workers in the job market
There is still a barrier to both the public and private sectors hiring workers over the age of 45. However, there are some trends emerging. Woolworths has identified mature-age workers as the future priority. Its diversity and equal opportunity strategy include hiring older workers. The more mature workforce is not only very reliable but demonstrates low staff turnover also. Older workers are also finding their passion and purpose in later life. They move out of work they have done for all their lives. They discover their entrepreneurial skills and enjoy returning to tertiary study. Such skills show up in marketing their businesses online, for example. In making any transition mature age workers are advised to plan and learn about the businesses they may be establishing. There will challenges and joy as they succeed.
