National Employee Older Worker Week is September 23-29! Our the theme this year is that older workers are a valuable asset for employers, especially as it relates to mentoring and being a role model for younger workers. This year, the SCSEP national office is providing files for two NEOWW posters. Each poster is in 8.5x11” and 16x20” sizes, and is available in English and Spanish. You can find the files in the “National Employ Older Workers Week materials” folder under Resources. You are welcome to print or electronically distribute these posters however you like.

Adecco, a staffing company, recently released the results of a telephone survey of hiring managers on their hiring of mature workers. Among their findings:

  • Hiring managers are three times as likely to hire a mature worker (60 percent) as they are to hire a Millennial (20 percent).
  • Hiring managers think mature workers and Millennials possess different personality traits; hiring managers are most likely to associate mature workers with being reliable (91 percent) and professional (88 percent).
  • When it comes to skills that need strengthening, hiring managers feel mature workers need more technological know-how (72 percent).

For more details, view the complete survey results or check out this write-up in USA Today.
