Making the Case For the Older Worker in the Intergenerational Workforce

WHY DO COMPANIES NEED TO THINK ABOUT THE VALUE OF MATURE WORKERS?
BECAUSE FUTURE PRODUCTIVITY WILL DEPEND ON THEM.

Chris Farrell, in his book Purpose and a Paycheck, quotes PwC,  the giant global consulting firm:  “If the United States increased its employment levels of older adults to New Zealand’s, the American economy would expand by over $815 billion.”

And this from Accenture, in collaboration with Oxford Economics:  Increasing the number of older people in the workforce and making productivity-enhancing investments in their skills could boost U.S. gross domestic product by $442 billion and lift employment levels by 5 million by 2020.”
