Gray is the new gold

Boomers represent some of the area’s finest resources. It’s a shame that so much local talent in our community is under-used. A worker over 60 has much to offer, yet is likely unable to find a way to remain relevant and productive in the workforce. Companies seeking to build their businesses and thrive can achieve a win-win by seasoning their payroll with older workers.

By reviewing their employment history, you are more likely to know what you are getting, as opposed to a younger worker, who may be a wildcard. Having been in the workforce longer, they have more breadth and depth of experience. — Jackie Ducci, CEO & founder, Ducci & Associates
