Older workers 'often offer stability and reliability'

Business managers who are looking to enhance their workplace have been told of the benefits of hiring an older person.

Dr Dianne Bown-Wilson, chief executive of In My Prime, pointed out that previous studies have shown that older workers tend to provide more stability in an office.

"Once they have a job, they tend to stay in the job for a number of years, whereas the turnover rate for younger people is much higher," she explained.

Another benefit acknowledged by Dr Bown-Wilson was the fact that reliability is usually higher with older people in the workplace than younger employees.

"They turn up for work on time and on the day to day basis, they take less sick leave - although they may take longer periods of sick leave if they get a serious illness," the expert noted.

Her comments were made soon after the Resolution Foundation ranked the UK in 15th position out of 34 OECD countries for older workers.
