This week on The JSA Blog, we’re sharing some news from the Staffing Industry.
With the current state of the U.S. economy, older workers are deciding to put off retirement or even re-enter the workforce. Inflation along with the current bear market have taken a bite out of retirement savings. Combine that with new opportunities to work remotely or hybrid, and there are plenty of reasons to be on the job hunt. Although there are many ways that older workers are at a competitive disadvantage, including age discrimination, there are other factors that put them in demand, such as their demographic being less likely to quit. The good news is that the job market remains strong, there are opportunities out there for older workers, and there are ways they can improve their chances at landing a job that works for them.
