Older workers are more apt to work for not for profits -- like us Older workers are as productive. Many of your options need to be asked with the context of continuing to employ; not just hiring. Also if you are just isolating older workers, it should be clear to the responder - do not blend older with long-term employees. Answers will change.

HR: Leading People, Leading Organizations © 2006 SHRM SHRM Weekly Online Survey: August 29, 2006 Other disadvantages of hiring older workers compared to other workers? The value of relationships are more important to older workers - this can create productivity issues and conflict with those on a career track. Some older workers have issues with manual labor positions, standing for long periods of time, heavy or repetitive lifting, etc. Some limited physical abilities/arthritis problems Short term employee Productivity and safety issues more challenging with older workers Older workers have more trouble with the physical demands of the job. Older worker's have less opportunity for longevity; closer to retirement Not likely to remain with the organization for long May not be able to do physical labor Less productive I do not believe that you should categorize a worker based on their age. Conflicts with Medicare earning limitations At times older workers may not be as productive as some younger workers based on the job.
