Should The Job Expectations Be Different For Older Workers?

It has often been argued that the older workers should have different job responsibilities as compared to that of the younger employees which further tends to create a difference between the job performances expected from the workers on the basis of age differences (The New York Times, 2009). This in turn creates a conflict that whether employers should continue with older employees who can yield a lower productivity to support the organizational requirements as compared to the younger workers.

Older people are medically often examined to lack physical stamina and enthusiasm to perform like young workers. Stress disorders are also common among old employees who are expected to yield equal productivity as the young workers. Additionally, the pension norms and old-age facilities to be offered to the older workers by their employers also tend to build a constraint on employers expecting equal contributions from workers, irrespective of their age (Brownell & Kelly, 2013). Since, older employees have loads of experiences regarding the work, and also because they develop a higher degree of loyalty for the organization, they should be considered important for the business. It is in this context that by channelising the experiences and the loyalty of the older workers, employers can successfully build a cohesive working environment to benefit its increasing need for competencies (Smeaton, Vegeris & Sahin-Dikmen, 2009).

Conclusively, it can be affirmed that where young employees can contribute with innovative thinking and high skilled labor, older workers can reward experienced views concerning the organizational operations. Thus, to keep the older employees free from physical or mental stress and involve them in company operations with due esteem, employees should have different job expectations from older workers.
