Older Workers

Paul Sturgeon has an excellent post today about hiring older workers. I strongly recommend you read it as he puts things much better than I ever could. Let me just throw you a small excerpt as an example:
"The company-employee loyalty is gone, for the most part, overcome by the realities of a global economy, mergers and acquisitions, a demand for short-term business results, and a host of other factors. What you have now is a situation where the average Gen X and Gen Y employee is changing jobs every 3-4 years. The bottom line is if you want someone today who is very likely to be with your company for 10 years, do not overlook someone who is 55 or 60 years old."
As I said, read the original article.
