TechRepublic: Myth busted: Older workers are just as tech-savvy as younger ones, says new survey

Tech employees over age 55 are actually less stressed using technology in the workplace, and better at using multiple devices than their younger peers. By Alison DeNisco

Click here for Full Story:

     The 3 big takeaways:

  1. Despite common stereotypes about older people and technology, a new survey found that IT workers over age 55 are actually less stressed using technology in the workplace than their younger peers, and they are better at using multiple devices at work.
  2. The tech industry skews young in age, due to stereotypes that older people are not creative, cannot learn new things, or are too costly to hire.
  3. Older adults looking for a new job in tech should make sure that they specifically state their tech skills in their application. Companies hiring new workers should be aware of age discrimination and try to evaluate all candidates objectively in order to get a diverse workforce.
