Corporate Australia needs to engage better with more mature workers : Comments

By Marcus Riley, published 30/1/2019

Unemployed Australians aged 60 to 64 are on unemployment benefit, on average, almost twice as long as those aged 25 to 29.

Needs? Surely you jest, Sir? CorporateAustralia or the remnant corpse has only one goal and tha goal is maximised profits and whatever the "market" can bear!

And ably assisted by an albatross of a political class/system going further and further to the right and physically incapable of seeing anything other than its (self-serving) power goals!?

And arranging the furniture and window dressing ( energy/climate change) almost exclusively, with the object of achieving those self-serving goals!?

As one of the 'mature' people out there, I can only agree.
Not for selfish reasons, but because it's a good idea.
I understand the need for introducing new technologies and that it usually comes with a young person, so it is that business employ the young before the old.
I can empathise with the 'mature' worker, mainly because of experience.
Where-as the younger one has none, but management like the thought of training them to suite the company's way of doing things, where an older person is 'set in their ways', and more difficult to retrain compared to a younger 'blank canvas'.
So it is that mature people are overlooked.
I am convinced that there are positions well suited and better suited for older folks than younger ones, it is a matter to be decided upon between an applicant and management.

Sorry fella, one of the terms of this forum is 'NO ADVERTISING'.
So I respectfully request you remove your (what is clearly an advertisement)comments, or you will be reported and it will be removed for you.
I for one loath advertising, of all kinds, I am not as stupid and gullible as the general public, so I don't need to be told that something is so good and therefore I 'need' to buy it.
I'm actually smart enough to know a snow/con job when I see one.
So unless you have something to say about Corporate Australia engaging better with mature workers, I strongly suggest you remove your intrusive and unwelcome add.
