There are several misconceptions about older adults in the workforce, including that they work too slowly or are unable to keep up with their coworkers. However, this is not necessarily true. Older workers bring a certain level of experience and knowledge that cannot be taught, such as life experience. Older people tend to have a stronger work ethic and take their jobs more seriously because they are often trying to supplement their pension or social security. It’s essential not to look at older workers as overqualified, especially when they seek positions that would be considered a step-down. With many younger people exiting the workforce, seniors have found a new niche where they can contribute to society and earn money.
