Older workers 'will embrace technology'

Many older workers who have retired or are considering retirement may return to the jobs market as they begin to embrace technology, it has been predicted.

According to Dr Graeme Codrington, futurist at Tomorrowtoday.uk.com, members of the baby boomer generation born in the 1950s and 1960s have previously proven themselves to be fairly traditionally-minded in their approach to the acceptance of new ways of technology-enabled working, but this is beginning to change.

He explained that even people who have given up work are going to 're-tyre', which is a phrase used to refer to somebody who has retired but become bored of life after work and decide to head back into the jobs market.

"In other words, they're going to get a taste for remote working and they're probably going to like it. My prediction is that remote working will be driven as much by older generations as younger," Dr Codrington added.

Recently, Shirley Borrett, development director at the Telework Association, said she believes that the past few years have shown that employers gain "enormously" from having people in sales jobs and other roles who are flexible or home-based.
