What do senior citizens have to offer the workforce?
Seniors take pride in a job well done. Seniors have a history of showing up on time, being reliable, honest and getting the job done. Whatever the job, they take pride in a job well done. Youth in the workforce are apt to put in their time at work and leave, while older employees are more willing to stay later to finish the task.
Senior citizens have good communication skills. They came of age before Facebook, texting and selfies. They look you in the eye and to speak in complete sentences. They will ask questions if they do not understand expectations of the employer.
Seasoned Citizens understand what Customer Service means. Their work ethic is proven.
Mature workers have years of life and work experience thus they are experienced at problem solving; thus they are less likely to give-up in the event of unexpected obstacles.
