Older Workers More Open to Change [Industrial and Organizational Psychology] Friday 03/11/05 3:10 PM

A study at the Louisiana State University contradicts the common belief that older workers are more resistant to change. The study found that older workers are more supportive of workplace changes and willing to work harder to learn the new systems than their younger counterparts.

Studies have shown that older workers do take longer to pick up new ideas and changes. What this study found is that the older workers are more committed to the organization so when changes are good for the company, they put more energy into adapting to the changes.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, within 5 years more than 20% of the workforce will be over 55 years of age. To better retain this growing population of valuable older workers, organizations can implement training to help keep the employees technically current. The study has shown that the older workers are willing and eager to make the effort and less likely to job hop.
