Highly skilled, reliable, experienced and efficient - there are a number of benefits to having or hiring an older employee.

The proportion of older workers is increasing - but this isn’t something to feel wary of. Older employees are often confident in their abilities, serving as excellent mentors, coaches or assistants able to manage ambitious younger employees. Older employees typically take less unexpected short term sickness leave, but they are at a higher risk of taking long term sickness due to age related health concerns. It is unlawful to discriminate a current or prospective employee based on their age - and this is relevant for every age, including young people.
