People are staying in the workforce longer for many reasons: longer life expectancy, financial security, or simply a desire to continue working. Older workers want to be engaged and productive, but ageism is still a barrier for them.
Companies benefit from employing older workers who often have significant knowledge and experience. Benefits of a diverse workforce include unique perspectives, improved productivity and collaboration, knowledge transfer, and the opportunity to foster a learning environment.
