The average age of scientists in the US has gone up from 45.1 years to 48.6 years between 1993 and 2010, and is likely to keep rising, according to a new study.
But there is no clear evidence that older scientists are producing less valuable research, said experts. Other studies have also shown that it is not true that older workers are less efficient than their younger peers.
The age of Singapore’s workforce has also been steadily rising. The Government has been making it easier for older workers to continue working if they wish to, by raising the re-employment age to 67 and working with employers and unions to stamp out ageism at the workplace.
What else do you think we can do to keep our seniors engaged at the workplace?
