Older Employees Are More Engaged and Increase Revenue
Posted by Insightlink on 05/13/15
The more engaged your employees are the greater your profits will be.
‘Digital natives’ is a term used in job ads that some lawyers say is code for ‘young worker’ suggesting that older people need not apply. Sadly these companies are missing out by narrowing their recruiting efforts against younger workers and excluding older workers.
1. Older workers cost companies more
2. Older workers aren’t interested in-nor are adept at-learning new things, such as technology.
Employing older workers has other advantages too and include: experience, professionalism, work ethic, lower turnover, and knowledge.
As a company that is dedicated to employee engagement, what we found most fascinating about this study was that it proved that ‘Workers who are 50 or older are more engaged in their jobs than younger employee and are more likely to have a positive impact on profitability than previously thought’. And that generational difference in engagement doesn’t need to be large. The study found that 65% of workers are 55+ are engaged compared to 58%-60% of younger workers are. That 5% increase in engagement translates into 3% incremental revenue growth. In other words a large company with $5 billion in revenue will achieve a $150 million revenue increase as a result of even a 5% engagement improvement.
This is powerful evidence that proves the positive impact of employee engagement on profitability.
We know from our own research, that regardless of an employee’s age, employee engagement levels directly impact revenue. When people care about their organization they go above and beyond in all aspects of their work which is why the quest for employee engagement is something like the Holy Grail for many employers.
