The Benefits of An Age-Diverse Workforce
We recognize the benefits of a mixed-age workforce. Our CareGivers such as Dee and Eden demonstrate that you can enjoy working beyond middle-age. They also have a natural empathy caring for our older Clients.
Research also shows that when teams mix older and younger workers, productivity goes up and complex problems find more novel solutions because the strengths and weaknesses of both groups are balanced. Older workers can draw on valuable business experience and knowledge of their sector, whilst younger workers may challenge outdated strategies and bring fresh perspectives.
Knowledge sharing is the number one benefit of an age-diverse workforce.
The Centre of Ageing Better says:
“Older workers are an important part of a successful workforce with evidence that mixed-age teams are more productive in some tasks. Employers also benefit from retaining their most experienced people, reducing the risk they face of labour and skills shortages, and having a workplace that is fit for the future.
Enabling more people to be in fulfilling work for longer is a win-win for everyone – it also helps people who want to stay in work for longer and boosts the economy.”
