The Harvard Business Review has a great article on the assumptions we make regarding younger and older workers.  In looking at people from 24 to 80 and across industries, they found far fewer differences than we all imagined. In fact, many traits commonly associated with younger workers were the same across the workforce.

People of every age are becoming aware of the changing nature of work and reinvesting in themselves.  Whether workers continue past traditional retirement age due to financial pressures or the desire to do more, we all know the data shows that working longer is healthier than early retirement – healthier physically, mentally, and emotionally. And older workers are excited about their work, physically fit, and ready for new adventures.
